Returning to earth, we decelerate to arrive at the same scene with the same man asleep on the grass. We move in closer, as we again change the size of the scene by decreasing distance from the camera one magnitude each ten seconds. The surface of the skin on the man's hand gives way to cells and cell components, until we see the DNA moleculein. As our magnification increases, we penetrate the electron cloud of an atom and eventually arrive at the atomic nucleus, with its pulsating nuclear core elements at 10⁻¹⁶ meters. The width of the scene is 0.000001 angstroms. The film has moved in real time over its course of forty powers of ten, from the cosmic distances of the universe to the heart of the atom

An Eames primer by Eames Demetrios( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The first book to capture the philosophy and spirit behind the work of Charles and Ray Eames, An Eames Primer offers an in-depth look at the couple's prolific legacy - one that has placed them among the most important American designers of the twentieth century." "Those who know one or two aspects of the Eameses' work are often surprised to learn just how far and vast their range extended. Yet throughout their myriad works, from architecture and furniture to exhibition design and filmmaking, their core philosophy prevails. An Eames Primer is the first book to illuminate this seamless connection." "Author Eames Demetrios explores the rich energy of the Eameses' world from a unique perspective, informed by his close relationship with Charles and Ray. He shares personal anecdotes, previously unpublished photos, and his extensive interviews with former friends and colleagues of the Eameses to make connections between the Eameses' influential philosophy and their widely admired work. For those unacquainted with the designers, the stories behind the design process will inform, entertain, and inspire, while readers with an extensive knowledge of the Eameses' work gain a deeper level of understanding their process."--Jacket
