  8. 8. voice-over on documentary video from 9 evenings: Theatre and Engineering. E.A.T<br /><br />“I want to remove the notion of the separation between the artist and the engineer. I think that the engineer is separate from other people simply because of his very specialized knowledge. And very shortly because of the continued use of those specialized knowledges, if on the one hand the artist can become aware so to speak of the technology, and if the technologist can become aware so to speak of the fact that the show must go on, then I think we can expect interesting art, but we may just very well expect an interesting change in the social order. The most important effect it seems to me at the present moment is that the position of the engineer as a possible revolutionary figure. And it may very well come as a result of the artists and engineers collaboration because the artist for years now has been a repository so to speak of revolutionary thought whereas the engineers in their recent history have been the employees of the economic line. But in relating to the artists they become related to a revolutionary factor.”<br />
