Julie Martin came at one of our workshops and listened to the interviews I took with some of my participants. She offered to contribute by telling about her experience on the intersection of art and technology. She was one of the initiators of E.A.T. Experiments in Art and Technology 9evenings.org/
In 1966 10 New York artists worked with 30 engineers and scientists from the world renowned Bell Telephone Laboratories to create groundbreaking performances that incorporated new technology. Video projection, wireless sound transmission, and Doppler sonar - technologies that are commonplace today - had never been seen in the art of the 60's. The 9 Evenings DVD Series is an important documentation of the collaborations between the artists and engineers that produced innovative works using these emerging technologies. These performances still resonate today, as forerunners of the close and rapidly-evolving relationship between artists and technology.
