Some more Beginnings. An Exhibition of submitted works involving technical materials and processes. Organized by Staff and Members of Experiments in Art and Technology. In Collaboration with the Brooklyn Museum and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

Artist’s pubication. Soft cover, staple bound. 122 pages with numerous reproducions, ill. Tall format, 41 x 27 cm. Covers and pages printed on the same very thin paper. In 1968 an exhibition entitled "The Machines Seen at the End of the Mechanical Age" was held at the Brooklyn Museum in New York City. The exhibited works were comments upon the world of machines and technology. In connection with this exhibition, the museum asked “Experiments in Art and Technology” for a contribution to the section dedicated to new technologies. E.A.T. (Experiments in Art and Technology) was founded to promote collaboration between engineers and artists. In this context, a competition was announced for works to be shown in this exhibition. The jury for this competition consisted of James M. Brownlow of IBM Research Laboratories, Michael D. Golder of Celanese Plastics Company, Cyril Mr. Harris, Professor of Electronic Engineering and Architecture at Columbia University, John W. Pan of Bell Telephone Company Laboratories and William G. Rosen of the National Science Foundation. The contributions were judged and selected based on their inventiveness and imaginative content. The first prize went to Harris Hyman and Ralph Martel for “Heart Beats Dust”. Catalogue designed by Billy Kluver, Julie Martin, and Robert Rauschenberg. Reference: Brooklyn Museum Archives. Records of the Department of Public Information. Press releases, 1953 – 1970. 1968, 013: November 1968: "A dust sculpture, a fog room, and a leased steel environment are among 137 examples in an exhibition of art involved with new technology opening at The Brooklyn Museum on November 26. Entitled “Some More Beginnings,” the exhibition is being presented by Experiments in Art and Technology, Incorporated, an organization devoted to furthering collaboration between artists and engineers. The scientist’s application of technology to the imagination of the artist has produced fascinating new modes of expression. This alliance has created works that totally involve the onlooker, and in many cases require him to participate. Objects talk, move, blink, whir, make music, and demand response. The exhibition comprises paintings, reliefs, sculpture, constructions, environments and films, and will occupy the entire West Gallery and Sculpture Court on the fifth floor. The works are the result of an international competition held by E.A.T. which received 150 entries 95 of them collaborative efforts, from 19 states in this country, and from 8 foreign countries. “Some More Beginnings” will remain on view at The Brooklyn Museum through January 5, 1969.
