    Our world has serious problems with how much waste we create, so if you're going to make this type of art consider using recovered materials and items that were set to be trashed anyway (great way to save money too!). By itself, a pile or display of perfectly edible food labelled "Garbage", or a performance of trashing great-looking food makes a stronger statement than many "art for art sake" pieces, but I guess that's because I value art that reveals truth or injustice over others, especially wasteful fluff. But art has no boundaries so do whatever, unless it's a performance of launching nukes as a statement on life or destruction or how we don't appreciate things until they're gone. It might be the most talked about performance art in history, but that boundary is real. Though as soon as I say that artists will cross it because breaking rules and conventions is how art progresses. Oh shit, art is gonna kill us all! Quick, everyone stop performing art!

    Two thoughts – 1. Sarah has now suffered through a blenderized a meal, without the spurring of a Vlogbrothers punishment. For art!
    2. Especially as someone who has always been poor, I have a hard time calling the wasting of food "art", and suspect I'm not alone in this feeling. I'm wondering how you balance the desire to represent historical art movements & prompts accurately against other such factors.

    the mono meals kind of remind me of my christmas nachos. which came about when i found red tortilla chips in the store, and it was christmas time. made nachos with only foods that were red, green, or white. results were a fun night with my dad and some pretty good nachos.

    Knit a scarf of 100 rows then, before finishing it of, remove the hooks and unravel the entire thing making sure to wind all the used yarn into a ball. Throw the ball out a window.

    I just wanted to leave some love on this channel. I have always wanted to get in to art, but never knew how. Once I discovered your channel I was hooked and now I feel more confident going to the sculpture garden literally across the street (the Walker in Minneapolis) and taking in art all through out the year. Love what you do and thank you for doing it!

    You know, as a bonus, now when someone sits on that cushion/couch, and notices it's lopsided and missing some foam, that is one great conversation starter! 😀 Thank you for this! I hadn't heard of Fluxus before, tickled to see what they were creating and instigating others to create. Your black meal looks really good! I think I'm going to try a variation on your black fruit maki roll… 🙂

    I really appreciate the info on George Maciunas, because I've been trying to 1. pronounce his name, and 2. tell people who he is, for a long time. We've got this photo of him, John Lennon, and Yoko Ono in our bookstore from the area (the Berkshires). It takes people a moment to recognize John in the bonnet and dress, then Yoko in the uniform, and finally they ask–who's that?

    I can't help but feel annoyed, even angry at times, when I see that so much food is being pretty much wasted in order to be called art (even though I guess the real food wasters are all the grocery stores and restaurants and such that throw away so much more food daily than one person could). Still, I like learning that all of this exists, and in a way I appreciate the actual edible art (like the all-black meal) even more.

    The Fluxus-inspired Scrambled Scrabble Dinner assignment is one of my favorite in The Art Assignment, precisely because it allows us to create together, and it doesn't require anyone to have previous art knowledge. "It's just a lousy meal planning."
    Now I discover that there's much more to the Fluxus movement. With that assignment, we got to create dishes with bold combinations, but they were ultimately good, edible food. If anything, we were making out-of-the-box great creative dishes (well, apart from my doritos ravioli, which tasted horrible but remains my favorite from the three times I played the scrambled scrabble dinner – I guess I might have grasped what Fluxus is all about, after all). We were playing the ego game once again, trying to make the best dish when in adverse conditions. Next time I might be more disruptive. (Maybe. Maybe not.)

    Great video, as usual. Thanks for making me think.

    This is even worse than Dada, the epitome of lazy. Not all of it, but much of it. That’s the problem with art, you can’t have an argument with your sibling and call it law but for some reason you can make a sandwich and call it art.

    You know, I love these Art Cooking videos, but the thing I gotta love the most about them is the fact that you embrace your process no matter how potentially badly it goes, and you do it in an incredibly calm, academic, comedically dry manner.

    Super interesting video, I love this channel. Out of curiosity, do you think the Fluxus movement would consider thinks like chemistry, composing and playing music, or even 3D printing as within their scope? I.e does following an experiment that anyone can do, or playing a song that was written by someone else, or even printing an object that someone else design qualify as Fluxus?

    Fluxus, eh?
    I dunno.
    Like many people my age (64), I first learned of Fluxus through Yoko and her involvement with a popstar. But I later learned more about it at a museum in Vienna, the Liechtenstein Palace in Vienna, which housed a modern art museum, and had a large collection of Fluxus things. I had to reconcile the scantiness of each item with the huge number of items. (In contrast, one Parthenon is enough to establish the importance of the Greeks.) While no single Fluxus piece establishes anything, the mass of them speaks of creativity of a sort.

    But then I thought about Yoko Ono's popstar, and some of his songs even when he was working with his famous quartet exhibited some kind of Fluxus "sensitivity". Many songs from "The White Album" seemed to have some of that kind of creativity. Like maybe "Helter Skelter. "
    And then I made the leap to ask how was Fluxus different from what Charles Manson's activities with Sharon Tate? I can clearly imagine the "scripts" of those ritualistic murders, and wondering whether those could be Fluxus events.
    But that's really too horrible a comparison to make. Really really horrible.

    I just don't get FLUXUS art. It doesn't seem like art at all; but instead, it looks like friends just hanging out and being silly. Maybe it's the act of hanging out with your friends that is supposed to be art? I don't know.

    I understand making food into art though. There is a way to make very cool food art, that's so cool it's almost a shame to eat it!
