G.E.M. Slide Show

G.E.M.-1

1967

Charles and Ray originally titled this 345-image, 3-screen slide show Excellence, G.E.M., or Government, Education, and Management.  They first gave the presentation in Miami, Florida, at an IBM Corporate Recognition Event for its “Hundred Percent Club.”

The images and narration addressed favorite Eames lecture topics.  This included the need to look anew at familiar details we often take for granted, as well as  the subject of “excellence,” which Charles and Ray viewed as a commitment to work, and an understanding of the true meaning of “quality.”
