A Computer Perspective


The first of many Eames Office exhibitions designed for IBM, A Computer Perspective charted the development of the computer from 1890 to 1950.
This exhibition included vintage and modern machines and a densely-layered six-paneled History Wall that incorporated computer artifacts, documents, and photographs mounted at various depths.
A Computer Perspective included a multiscreen slide show of 500 images called AV Rack, which highlighted the newest computer applications at that time. It also featured an interactive computer game of “Twenty Questions,” in which visitors tried to guess which subject (animal, vegetable, or mineral) the computer had selected.
A Computer Perspective opened at the IBM Corporate Exhibit Center in 1971 and ran through 1975.
