To mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Nikola Tesla, the Croatian History Museum and the Technical Museum, created the exhibition:
Nikola Tesla. The Man Who Lit Up the World.
This exhibition is now in Madrid. It is rather small and informative, but contains two working replicas of Tesla-machines, the Egg and the Coil. Funny to see the similarities between the one we presented during Stedsans and the official one. The use of a vintage bedside table really ties them together.
Tinkertank would use the exhibition for a piece of guerrilla marketing. A photo of us together with Vesla Tesla and the webpage printed at the bottom, a bit of virtual blog becoming real, some innocent illegal fun.
At first we tried to stick it straight on to the Coil, but that was too heavy. The warning sign telling pacemaker users to stay away was discreet and in a perfect location.
Quotes from the exhibition:
When I get a new idea, I start at once building it up in my imagination, and make improvements and operate the device in my mind. When I have gone so far as to embody everything in my invention, every possible improvement I can think of, and when I see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form the final product of my brain.
It is more than likely that the daily papers will every day, overnight, by wireless transmission, be delivered to households. Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine.
