Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames

I remember being a kid and watching one of my (first) favorite video artworks (ever), Powers of Ten. Talk about new media art! Powers of Ten was created in 1968!! This internal/external perspective was directed and filmed by the brilliant duo, Charles and Ray Eames. Click here to view a contemporary (online/interactive) interpretation to the couple’s original video work. Enjoy, share, and be inspired!
