General note

At Art Center, May 1985: Mobile automated territorial things What is a "mobile automated territorial thing"? You've got thirty seconds to answer.

The "mobile automated territorial thing" (M.A.T.T. for short) is a user-friendly, office-friendly system of components, designed for a project sponsored by Haworth, Inc., one of the nation's leading office furnishings manufacturers.

Seven groups of students worked under direction of Gaylord Eckles, Environmental Design program coordinator, and instructors Laurence Deutsch and Christian Krake.
