Sign (Declaratory or advertising artifact)
This hand-painted panel, produced by the Eames Office, was displayed in the IBM Pavilion at the 1964 New York World's Fair. The panel advertises a mechanical puppet show called "Computer Day at Midvale," which told a story about the fictional town's first computer. The IBM Pavilion tried to humanize computers--the Eameses' playful, refined communication and design skills provided the solution.
