Powers of Ten 1978 (9 minutes)

This cinematic classic by Charles & Ray Eames opens at a lakeside picnic in Chicago and draws back in perspective by order of magnitudes of ten, every ten seconds, until the Milky Way is a dot of light lost amidst an unimaginably large universe, then reverses the journey, ending inside the proton of a carbon atom.


A Rough Sketch for a Proposed Film Dealing with the Powers of Ten and the Relative Size of Things in the Universe (8 minutes)


"901: After 45 Years of Working" (29 minutes)

Filmed during the dismantling of the famous office of Charles and Ray Eames, this video offers a whirlwind tour of the material accretions of four and a half decades of visionary artistic endeavor. It is an inspiring glimpse of a unique couple and the historical site they created, a place where spontaneity and innovation combined to manifest the enduring Eames' genius.
