About a hundred years ago while Lu and I were in San Francisco, in one of the last bars where you could still smoke, we were sitting up on a dark balcony listening to the DJ play a really good set of classic hip hop while a projection played on one of the wall. The projection was a series of looped films by Charles and Ray Eames. Most people usually recognise their Eames 'Lounger' chair more than anything else they did - and they did a lot. These guys were polymaths - and pretty much borderline geniuses in my eyes.This is one such film - a deceptively simple idea elegantly executed. Take the time to YouTube some more and read up on them as the work is really inspiring.
