The Hand of the Sleeping Man

From the Eames Office archives in Santa Monica, a production image from Powers of Ten–Charles Eames shooting the hand of the sleeping man at the picnic.

Paul Bruhwiler, at the Office of Charles and Ray Eames from 1967-1968, was the man in Powers of Ten: A Rough Sketch for a Proposed Film Dealing with the Powers of Ten and The Relative Size of the Universe, in 1968.  He rejoined the Office in 1975 to work on the exhibition, The World of Franklin and Jefferson, and reprised his role in the final version of Powers of Ten, in 1977.
