FURNITURE AND FILM
The furniture and home furnishings store Design within Reach is presenting in its stores The Eames Film Festival. Consisting of seven short films by modernist designers Ray and Charles Eames, the series will be presented at DWR studios across the country and includes their classic 1977 film Powers of Ten, which is described like this:
Starting at a one meter square image of a picnic, the camera moves ten times further away every ten seconds, reaching to the edge of the universe; then the journey is reversed, going ten times closer each ten seconds, ultimately reaching the interior of an atom. It was chosen for the Library of Congress National Film Registry, as a “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant motion picture.
The series, which consists of single-night screenings, begins August 10 in San Francisco and winds up October 4 in Birmingham, Michigan.
