Science and art are in a natural relationship and overlap. Both are the means of research. Both contain ideas, theories, and hypotheses that are tested at places where the mind and hand meet – in a lab or an art studio. Artists, as well as scientists, are analytically studying materials, people, cultures, history, religion, mythology and, as a result, everything transforms into information or something tangible.
The development and expansion of art forms transform the human idea from impossible to possible. Metaphorical, artist and scientist are the same.
This time, Nikola Tesla gathered us in a different way. Artistic works are their own poetics and symbolism regarding what Tesla can be, what Tesla is or what he has left us in the inheritance.
