Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Seoul, this volume delves into the groundbreaking activities of E.A.T., a non-profit organisation that began actively promoting and exploring the union of art and technology in 1966. The brainchild of artists Robert Rauschenberg and Robert Whitman and engineers Billy Kl├╝ver and Fred Waldhauer, it aimed to expand the social role of artists and counteract feelings of alienation brought on by rapid technological advancement. The group hoped to inspire new directions for research, and also to serve as a catalyst in fostering technologies more attuned to the needs of the individual.
