 The Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) Documentation Collection

In August 2000, the Daniel Langlois Foundation acquired a collection of documentation published by Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.). The mission of E.A.T., founded in 1966 by engineers Billy Klüver and Fred Waldhauer and artists Robert Rauschenberg and Robert Whitman, was to act as an intermediary and to promote interaction between the arts and technology. This collection features over 600 documents that explore the activities of E.A.T. from 1965 to 1981.

Finding aids are now available on the Foundation's Web site: a biographical profile of E.A.T., descriptions of the collection's different themes, complete lists of documents, a search engine and a complementary bibliography on E.A.T. The documents are kept at the Foundation's Research and Documentation Centre and available on site for researchers. [More...]
