From “Beyond Modern Sculpture” – Jack Burnham
The Future of Responsive Systems in Art
In the fall of 1966 the first festival of art and technology took place at the Sixty-ninth Regiment Armory, New York City. This "9 evenings: theatre and engineering" was housed in the same building that contained the historic Armory Show of 1913. Here was the first calculated, large-scale attempt by engineers, artists, and dancers to pool their talents in the recognition that art and technology were no longer considered alien forces subverting each other. Billy Kluver coordinated the technics of the affair; this is the same Bell Telephone physicist who has acted as adviser for many important Kinetic exhibitions since 1960.
