Otherwise, this book has almost every hand-made art work created during the year of 2014 including paintings, collages, drawings, sketches, and correspondence works. There may be a doodle here and there or a few unfinished works that have not be included, but this document accurately records the chronological order of at least 98% of the artwork for the year. Also included is documentation of exhibitions that Touchon was in or curated as well as collage poetry that was created over the course of the year.

All art works created by Cecil Touchon during the year of 2013. Includes installation photos of exhibitions, poetry, photographs, articles, etc. about Cecil Touchon.

Natural Born Fluxus is that tendency among artists to engage in Fluxus-like behaviors even if they never heard of Fluxus. Or possibly we could say that Fluxus ideas come out of a naturally occurring tendency in all artists that we now think of as Fluxus. It could be that the free wheeling nature of Fluxus allows artists to enjoy their creative, or at least peculiar, tendencies in an unfettered way that other forms of organized artistic activities do not.

In this book of poetry Cecil Touchon extracts material from the very fabric of the massurreality; texts from spam email. In these poems Touchon gives us a contemplative glimpse into contemporary artistic practice where the artist becomes, much more a connector of things than a creator. Every day trillions of bits of data are transmitted over the Internet. As artists peer into this world of information overload a vast body of incoherent data is brought into view. Much like the subconscious explored by the early Surrealists, Touchon uses this raw material to explore unlikely configurations through the use of found text, the abutment of random, unrelated words and phrases such as the classic example from Lautreamonts Chants de Maldoror: the unexpected meeting, on a dissection table, of a sewing machine and an umbrella . This embrace of randomness is central to Touchon's poetic output.
