In 1971, E.A.T. conducted a series of comparative studies with psychologists from Bell Laboratories (Murray Hills, New Jersey, U.S.) to test advanced technologies used in statistical analysis (INDSCAL). One of the studies polled Americans on 21 economic and social problems. In another study, E.A.T. compared the free associations obtained from target groups in response to concept words chosen by artists. During this second study, E.A.T. collected data using teleprinters set up in New York, Stockholm and Tokyo. Jim Anderson coordinated the various phases of the project.
