Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.) is a not-for-profit service organization for artists and engineers to provide artists with new technology, technical information and assistance by matching them with
engineers and scientists who can collaborate with them. It was founded in 1966 by engineers Billy Klüver and Fred Waldhauer and artists Robert Rauschenberg, and Robert Whitman. E.A.T. has carried out
large scale collaborative projects like "9 Evenings: Theatre and Engineering" a series of artists’ performances made in collaboration with engineers from Bell Telephone Laboratories; the design and
programming of the Pepsi Pavilion at Expo '70 in Osaka, Japan; and projects that extended the artist's activities into new areas of social concern: instructional television programming for India's satellite
television system; international telex project; and pilot projects with children and new communications equipment.
