In 1968, Mel Bochner replied to an open call organised by the “Experiments in Art and Technology” program: “The Singer Notes” are made up of notes and drawings which resulted from the conversations he held with scientists and engineers there. “The Singer Notes”, which were the primary outcome of such conversations, address several themes: how do scientists translate their research into more concrete applications? how do they design experiments? the nature of colour as a type of energy; the fundamental differences between the analog and the digital; how do scientists (and in a broader sense, people) know what they know?
