Nikola Tesla

Who was the man who wanted to bring light to the world and tamed the mysterious force of Alternating Current (AC) electricity? That man's name is Nikola Tesla. Many believe that Thomas Edison was the only inventor to work with electricity, not true! Tesla invented the alternating current (AC) induction motor and other related inventions, which Westinghouse Electric licensed and purchased. Tesla was later cheated out of the royalties from his patients when Westinghouse merged with General Electric in 1892. Power and politics played a significant role in popularizing Edison's direct current over Tesla's alternating current. This collage has a beautiful soft yellow cast to signify Tesla's brilliant ideas and mastery of light and invention. Both AC (Alternating Current) and Direct Current (DC) can light a household bulb that is hand-drawn on the lower left-hand corner of this collage. A photo of Tesla gazing outward shows how haunting, serious, and determined he was as a person and inventor. The photograph on the bottom left of the collage shows Tesla seated in a chair under his invention, the magnifying transmitter which generated millions of volts of electricity. He brilliantly demonstrated wireless lighting by "electrostatic induction" during an 1891 lecture at Columbia College. The various circle sizes in the collage represent the different sized coils and mechanisms needed to make his inventions operate. The vintage music sheet included illustrates his symphonic-like vision for how he would connect and light the world using electricity.
