The Architect and the Painter

After seeing the incredibly cool and very well designed California Design, 1930–1965: "Living in a Modern Way" exhibition at LACMA and then purchasing the equally inspiring catalogue, catching this doco was a no brainer.  There are now only a few days left to catch the insightful, sweet and inspiring doco on Charels and Ray Eames - Eames: The Architect and The Painter at ACMI and I highly recommend it.

From architecture and art to film making and industrial design, these guys made magic.  

 Winner of the San Francisco International Film Festival Award, 1958, this portrayal of the Mexican Day of the Dead consists of still shots reflecting the annual Mexican celebration of “All Souls Day”.

I ask you - who else would design a kite of this caliber?

 A little perspective from their most famous 1968 film about orders of magnitude.
