Eames Demetrios

March 1, 2006 | Video Lecturer:

Artist Eames Demetrios shows and discusses the films of his grandparents, Charles and Ray Eames, and how filmmaking and other art practices were seen as an extension of their architectural design process. Demetrios shows his work on a CD-ROM titled “Powers of Ten,” which includes excerpts from the films, “Powers of Ten,” “Toys,” “Rough Sketch,” and other related interviews. Design principles of constraint, scale, honesty of materials, and feedback loops, are a reoccurring theme throughout the lecture.

Konrad Wachsmann On Charles Eames Part Two

January 1, 1978 | Video Lecturer:

Following a screening of Powers Of Ten, Konrad Wachsmann recalls the intense research effort for a National Aquarium for the U.S. Bicentennial, that transformed the Eames office into a deep sea laboratory. He briefly mentions the Eames-designed exhibition Nehru: His life and his India. Wachsmann shows aerial photographs of Rome taken by Charles Eames. He uses the history of the construction of St. Peter’s Basilica to illustrate the conflict between old and new. He recalls the engineer Norman Bruns, who often work with Eames, but who also ran a music store. Wachsman describes Bruns’ fascination with the technology of musical instruments. Wachsmann concludes his lecture by asking Elizabeth Bruns to play. Bruns plays Bach’s Arioso on the violin.
