Made-to-order Powers of Ten exhibitions

Like many youngsters, I learned a lot about the universe from Charles and Ray Eames’ great film Powers of Ten. The camera’s ability to transport the viewer outside of the galaxy, then to the interior of the tiny skin cells of the people picnicking in the park, was both remarkable and informative. The film is also often found in flipbook form, which enables the user to manipulate the macro-micro shifts both fowards and backwards. Wonderfully enough, the Eames Office creates exhibitions for science and children’s museums, customized for their particular location, such as California or Portugal. I would love to see how the wonders of the film translate into a museum environment.
