E.A.T. Experiments in Arts and Technology
Based in New York, Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) was a unique association of engineers and artists that included Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Whitman, Billy KlÃ¼ver and Fred Waldhauer. The initiative was launched to realize works of art in unprecedented collaborative ventures, employ cutting-edge technology and to create artworks that would not have been possible without the expertise of scientists. Among these works were Jean Tinguely's "Homage to New York" (1960) and David Tudor's "Rainforest" (1973), as well as the legendary "9 Evenings" (1966) and "ARTCASH" (1971). This comprehensive overview offers a chronology of E.A.T.'s projects from 1960 to 1973, examining each project with a range of installation shots, archival photographs and ephemera, and essays by Simone Forti, Catherine Morris and others.
