The Information Machine

The Information Machine

Cartoon Modern has a very nice article about the short animation The Information Machine produced by Charles Eames and designed by Dolores Cannata in 1957.

Throughout the Fifties, UPA would regularly host open houses and screenings to introduce the broader artistic community to their brand of animated filmmaking. Industrial designer and filmmaker Charles Eames was so impressed by the studio’s work after attending one of these events that he purchased stock in UPA. By the mid-Fifties, Eames was also exploring ways of incorporating more animation into his own films. The Information Machine: Creative Man and The Data Processor (1957) was the first completely animated film produced by Eames. It was commissioned by IBM Corporation’s design director Eliot Noyes to screen in its pavilion at the 1958 Brussels World’s Fair.
