Allen discovered Fluxus by seeing one of my neighbors from Gambier, Ohio doing a performance in an elevator at Kent State. I had been a professor in the art department at Gambier and doing weird performances and mail art. Allen and I were the only two "young fluxus members" at the 1993 show at the Wexner Center in Columbus. We did a performance there than went out for dinner together and lamented we were not in the big show. He showed me his "Fluxus" license plate. We both admire each other's work and offer mutual support.
