The Tesla Project

-dustin younse-
Dorks and ACTLabbers,

I wanted to take a minute to pass along the info for what sounds like
a pretty excellent event.  Details are below.  If you'd like to
volunteer or present something Tesla related, feel free to contact
Cathy Savage at [hidden email].

THE TESLA PROJECT

2 p.m.– 11 p.m., Saturday, July 9, 2011

Austin, TX - Pump Project is pleased to present THE TESLA PROJECT, an
all-day extravaganza honoring the inventor Nikola Tesla, at their
Satellite building in East Austin. This event marks the second annual
TESLA PROJECT, dedicated to celebrating the genius of an often
overlooked inventor who is credited with things we use everyday:
alternating current, induction motor, and the radio.

THE TESLA PROJECT is pleased to announce that ArcAttack will be
returning as the headlining band this year. This performance-based
band used Tesla coils in their act as well as a Faraday suit.
ArcAttack was featured on the NBC 2010 program of America’s Got
Talent.

There will also be ...
a Tesla-inspired art show, juried by Debra Broz
several t-shirt designs to choose from--visitors will be able to pick
out a shirt and a screen, and shirts will be printed on the spot
the films All About Tesla and The History of Nikola Tesla – a Short
Story will be shown throughout the day
two Tesla Roadsters will be on view for a portion of the event (one
orange, one silver!)
performance artist Professor Conrad and group will be bringing THEGIANTBRAIN
there will be live music performed all day
a team from Bits, Bytes & Bots will have robots and computer
activities for children
Lyman Grant, Dean of Arts and Humanities at ACC, will reading his
Tesla-inspired poem

THE TESLA PROJECT is open to the public.
