Pacific Standard Time Art in L.A. - Ice Cube celebrates the Eames House

Did you know that Ice Cube once studied architectural drafting? That he thinks the L.A. highways have different kinds of traffic, including "gangsta traffic"?
"One mans eyesore is another mans paradise." he says as he cruises the city on his way to the Eames house. He points out that the Eames were "doing mashups before mashups even existed" by using pre-fabricated pieces, ad creating something entirely new.

Pacific Standard Time - Ice Cube celebrates the Eames - (2011) 2:15 (USA)

This is from TBWA/Chiat/Day's ongoing campaign for Pacific Standard Time Art in L.A. exhibit, which celebrates the art scene in Los Angeles from 1945 to 1980. Directed by @'s Dave Meyer, Ice Cube opens up to get a bit brainy and a lot poetic about the L.A. he knows and loves.
