What is Eat Art?

EAT( Experiments in Art and Technology) was a movement formed to develop and build collaborations between engineers and artists. It worked by contacting artists and engineers on a person-to-person basis. It was originally launched by artists Robert Whitman and Robert Rauschenberg and engineers Fred Waldhauer and Billy Kluver in 1967. The movement carried out activities and projects that expanded artist's role in the contemporary society.

Found objects

Found objects, objet trouvé in French, are items which an artist finds and incorporates within a work of art. Collectors have been displaying aesthetic objects in collections for centuries. But modern art uses objects with non-art functions, such as recycled or repurposed materials.

Tapestry

Tapestry is a heavy handwoven textile which features complicated designs or images woven into the fabric. Tapestries are art pieces woven by skilled weavers using natural wool, linen, cotton, silk and silver and gold threads; used as decoration, insulation, and symbols of authority.

Oil on canvas

A type of paint that dries slowly and consists of pigment particles suspended in oil for drying, mostly linseed oil. By adding a solvent like turpentine, the paint's viscosity may be modified and vanish can also be added to increase glossiness of the paint film that's dried. Use of oil began long time ago in Europe from as early as the 12th century where it was commonly used for decoration. It was however, not adopted to be used as a medium up until the 15th century.
