Since the launch of 10/10/10, the last 10 days have been very exciting as more workshops and presentations about the importance of scale have been developing. Scale is not precisely size, it is the relative size of things. Today we need to have a better understanding of scale if we are able to make better choices not just as global citizens but also in our day-to-day lives. Many viewers of the film from the worldwide celebration on 10/10/10 are thinking about hosting workshops, science fairs, debates and seminars based on the Powers of Ten film at schools and firms in order to gain a better understanding of the importance of scale.
Next Tuesday – 10/26/10, Llisa Demetrios will be giving a special Powers of 10 presentation which will be a free event hosted by IIDA at San Francisco Main Library (in the Koret Auditorium – Lower Level – enter 30 Grove Street) from 5:30 – 7:30pm. You can bring a parent, student, design associate, client or friend to hear about Charles & Ray Eames, watch the Powers of Ten film (and the Powers of Two short film), get an overview of the workshop, and think in terms of Powers of Ten for problem solving from the infinitesimal to the cosmic and the orders of magnitude in between. Each attendee will receive a copy of the new Powers of 10 workshop booklet.
