The Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) program began over 50 years ago by artist Robert Rauschenberg and engineer Billy Kluver. E.A.T. premiered 9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering, a series of new art-performance works that changed music, theater, and the media arts forever. The artists involved included John Cage, Lucinda Childs, and Yvonne Rainer to name a few.
