The handwritten text on panel B of Autobiography highlights significant artworks and collaborations and emphasizes moments in Rauschenberg’s life that shaped his artistic output. Beginning at the center of the spiral with the artist’s birth in Port Arthur, Texas, the text loops outward, ending with the creation of E.A.T. (Experiments in Art and Technology), an initiative he launched in 1967 with engineer Billy Klüver to help promote collaboration between artists and engineers.
