Core 77, the Eames Office and Herman Miller announced the jury winner for the Eames Powers of 10 Video competition today. Entrants were asked to create a 2-minute video response to Charles and Ray Eames’ seminal film, Powers of Ten. The winner’s video, created by the team at Idea Garden Media, is a funny take on the iconic film. You can check out the winning entry here. Also don’t miss the community prize winner’s film “Dreams of Eames” by LA-based Dave Douglass – it’s also very good. Congrats to the winners!
Eames Demetrios, who heads up the Eames Office and was one of the jury members said of the winning entry: “Charles Eames often said, ‘Eventually everything connects.’ I don’t know if Idea Garden Media had that idea in mind, but it was nice to see something that began as a low-tech tribute to the Powers of Ten evolve into a reminder that there is a deep inter-relationship between all the different scales. Their entry started as an homage, turned into a love letter and transformed into a celebration of the implications of the underlying idea. Good job.”
