(The Films of Charles & Ray Eames series, Part 1)
Takes us on an adventure in magnitudes. Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous film transports us to the outer edges of the universe. Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out until our own galaxy is visible only as a speck of light among many others. Both versions of the film, Powers of Ten (A Rough Sketch) [9 min] and Powers of Ten (Eames) [8 min], are included on this disk as well as the film 901: After 45 Years of Working, detailing the famed design space Charles and Ray Eames worked in at 901 Washington Boulevard in Venice, California (29 minutes).
