Summary
Tops: Many, many tops are featured in this classic Eames toy film ; IBM at the fair shows the brilliant Eames/Saarinen IBM Pavilion at the 1964 New York World's fair ; Computer glossary uses the jargon of computers to express something of their nature ; Eames lounge chair shows the assembly and disassembly of the famous chair at hyperwarp speed ; Expanding airport leads with a concise history of airports, followed by Eero Saarinen's Dulles Airport concept ; Kepler's laws depicts Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion ; Bread (from the landmark Sample lesson for a hypothetical course) shows this food as nutrition, craft, and culture ; A small hydromedusan gives us the lyrical motion of a tiny sea creature ; Tops (from Stars of jazz) is the rarely seen black and white precursor to the classic Tops (1969)
