The word “viral” comes from the fact that digital things spread across the internet in the same way that actual viruses spread through groups of people in real life. Therefore, by understanding how real viruses are “designed” to get the job done, you can make your designs more “viral” as well.

The solo exhibition “Thinking Matters” — which represents another step in Nikolaus Gansterer’s visual research — explores in detail the relationship between drawing, thought and action. His work is a true example of interdisciplinary studies; it is the result of a close confrontation between socio-humanistic, scientific and artistic disciplines from which the artist takes single methodologies and applies to these his unique, higly personal artistic language. The result of this work is an installation which occupies the entire space: the work is composed of autonomous elements which, contemporaneously, are tiles of a vaster mosaic which the artist has developed specially for the gallery space.
Did we really almost forget Nikola Tesla’s birthday? Shame on us! The ever fascinating Tesla was born July 10, 1856 to Serbian parents in what is now Croatia. This image of Tesla is from the February 1919 issue of Electrical Experimenter. Tesla published what amounts to a pretty nifty autobiography, My Inventions, in the publication:
III. My Later Endeavors
