The Powers Project: A Re-Imagining of Charles and Ray Eames’ Powers of Ten

Celebrating the landmark 1977 Eames film, Powers of Ten™, The Powers Project invited 40 innovative artists from around the world to produce original segments for each power of ten using a variety of digital and film techniques. This new, collaborative homage playfully transplants the film’s journey from the physical universe to a unique, imagined universe of graphic abstractions.

The Powers Project is a wildly creative re-imagining of the film featuring the contributions of dozens of the most innovative artists working in moving image today. While the structure and narration of the original film remain, the visual journey is transplanted from our physical universe to an imaginary, collaboratively-created universe of dynamic and continually changing abstractions. Rather than a strict remake of the original’s realistic journey (a remake of a perfect film would be pointless!), this is more like Powers of Ten at a party. The Powers Project is a hearty nod to an important film, a celebration of Charles and Ray Eames’ love for creative play, and a reflection of the exponential influence of their landmark film over the past 35 years.

Color-enhanced scanning electron micrograph of a human sperm fertilizing a human egg. The sperm has fused to the egg cell membrane (oolemma) prior to becoming incorporated almost completely into the egg. The zona pellucida has been removed in this preparation. The surface of the egg is covered with dense microvilli. Once the sperm has fused to the egg cell membrane the “zona reaction” takes place which prevents other sperm from entering the egg.

The Cycle of the Silkworm Life

Gujo, a Japanese video production company, has a fascinating series of portraits about the life cycle of silkworms and their breeding. The soundtracks chosen by Cujo are rather disturbing, and might make your contemplative experience of these beautiful creatures unpleasant (like it did to me.) I recommend however muting the youtube videos and using a optional sound scape I have chose for you or simply watch these videos in silence.
