Billions of light-years. Nanorobots. Supertankers. Viruses. Trillions of shares traded. Global environment under siege. We hear about scale every day. But how big are the big things? How small are the small ones? Understanding scale makes students better scholars and better citizens. This DVD companion to the classic film Powers of Ten, shows how to teach a class, your company, or even just yourself about scale and the key to effective citizenship and scholarship. In total the DVD includes 12 short films on scale by Eames Demetrios, Director of the Eames Office and grandson to Charles & Ray Eames.
Charles & Ray Eames
Above their role as furniture designers, Charles and Ray were communicators and educators. Museum exhibitions and World’s Fairs were avenues for the Eameses to reach the public masses, teaching about varied subjects like mathematics, technology, design, astronomy, geography, time, and culture. In all locations as well as within the walls of 901 Washington Boulevard, the films they made played a large part in their philosophy and design process. Whether the films were made for IBM, as proposals for airports, national aquariums or an exploration of patterns on a blacktop, the films by Charles and Ray Eames are some of the greatest tools they have left for us.
