Eames: The Architect & The Painter

When I first moved to New York in 1999 I went to a retrospective show of Charles and Ray Eames at the Cooper-Hewitt. Their design work was so fun to see, but I was really intrigued by some of their films that I had not previously seen. There was one called, Blacktop: A Story of the Washing of a School Play Yard (1952), which was projected on the floor of the museum and it consisited of nothing but soap suds washing over blacktop. While it may sound dull, the presentation and the overall effect was quite beautiful. I'm looking forward to this new documentary.  

Apple used Charles and Ray Eames in their "Think Different" campaign.  Watching the trailer for the upcoming doc, it seems like they were a good choice.
