Inspired by Eames: husband and wife
Confession time…. I’ve known about the Eames… as in ‘charles’ with his famous chairs but I didn’t really know about Charles and Ray Eames, married power couple and creative geniuses. This documentary ‘Eames: the architect and the painter’ (on netflix)gives an intimate look into the lives of the Venice company, their ups and downs and how they never derailed from their vision. Also… this underlying discussion about feminism and the questionable credit given to Ray.
A few things that really stuck with me from this film. 1) create the lifestyle you want to live with the space you live and work in. It should be an ever fluid work of art. 2) Surround yourself with people who inspire you on many levels. 3) Create just to create. Use different mediums. Do it for YOURSELF. This is one thing I really need to work on and not stop to think ‘i should take a photo for my blog’. Now go watch it. You will not be disappointed.
