We recently spotted a poster from the NEMO science museum, promoting their new exhibition Energetica.
It not only caught our eye for its simple beauty (new identity of NEMO was recently designed by Studio Dumbar), but also reminded us of a very cool video made by the Eames Office in 1977.
The poster says “This sun is 3,762,162,162 times smaller than the real sun”. The Eames video takes this much “further” as it takes you on an adventure in magnitudes, starting at a picknick by the lakeside in Chicago, transporting you to the outer edges of the universe, moving inward- into the hand of the sleeping picknicker- ending inside a proton of a carbon atom within a DNA molecule in a white blood cell.
If only my science teacher had showed me this! It would have inspired me to go to… film school ;).
