S. ” For that comment stops just short of a guilty confession, and its culpability, we shall see, reduces to the profoundly ambivalent status of technology in the 1960s. It is as if the management of RAND, deadly aware of its role in international politics, pressed art into the service of a public relations coup, as if to render its technology happy and user friendly. Art, in other words, might be exploited to soften the hardboiled, militaristic reputation of such corporations in the public sphere, which is not to say that artists were innocent of such charges themselves.

Art and technology rarely works, I think, and it has to do with the element of time, the surprise situation when timing becomes absolutely the most important thing. —Maurice Tuchman64 Time is political. Like technology, it is not neutral. “The metaphysics of capital is a technology of time,” Jean-François Lyotard once observed, an enormously resonant phrase in the context of the 1960s. It was then—with Apollo 11, with Vietnam, with the historical emergence of what has come to be known as the Information Age—that the contest for time assumed a decidedly technological aspect.

Time, in other words, becomes a figuration of uncertainty about the mechanics of historical change itself. Before we can begin to address this question, we need turn to the more standard accounts of art and technology in the sixties.
