1960s experiment left mark on social sciences

From the OC Register:
The research was sparked by a compelling set of black-and-white photographs of “the Farm,” a bizarre and failed experiment that took place at UC Irvine over about six months in 1968 and 1969. It wound up as the focus of an art exhibit and then a book, “Learning by Doing at The Farm,” published this year by UCI doctoral students Robert Kett and Anna Kryczka…. Given the long-standing conservative image of Orange County, the photos of people making crafts in a communal setting on undeveloped ranch land at UCI are both intriguing and strange.
