Experiments in Art and Technology (USA)

Experiments in Art and Technology (EAT) was founded in 1966 by engineers Billy Klüver and Fred Waldhauer, and artists Robert Rauschenberg and Robert Whitman. The organization, which operated in New York, was founded to explore the relationship between art and technology by fostering collaborations between engineers and artists. In 1973, the organization published Andy Warhol’s Mao II.89: a special edition of Warhol’s famous Mao screenprint. These prints of Mao (from an edition of 300) were created using a xerox machine and typewriter paper. Warhol photocopied the same image over and over, slightly expanding and enlarging the image each time. The lower edition numbers resemble Mao more closely, with #1 being the base drawing, while the higher edition numbers are abstract and completely alienated from their original form.

Thirty of the unique prints were published for The New York Collection for Stockholm for the benefit of the Moderna Museum, in Stockholm, Sweden.
