I became aware of the Fluxus manifesto whilst doing the workshops in second year, when I was in Sue's Modern Myth Lab. Ever since investigating into it, and creating one of our own I have been interested in the contents of the boxes Fluxus are renowned for. It's filled with cd's, posters, statements, written pieces, games, tape measures and even food!
I really like the way there is almost anything in here and its not only just for one person. Everyone has their specialities and when it comes to design we are all good at one aspect. Here it enables people to chip in with their own style and specialist areas.

Susan Archie has produced striking designs for Revenant, Dust To Digital and Table of the Elements which we’ve been happy to cover here on Hard Format. Her work imparts a sense of profound respect for its subjects which are fleshed out with biographical and critical detail. She often makes much of limited resources, for example the one surviving photograph of Charley Patton on Screamin’ and Hollerin’ the Blues. As with so much of the work we cover, we recommend you go out and buy this work to experience it properly.
I really like Susan's work, there is something really quaint about her designs and something nice about the way she uses old images and words. As my dissertation is set on album sleeves and music art work I think her influence and way of working may be a great help.
