About As part of an ongoing series of education-based exhibitions, The Museum of Photographic Arts (MoPA) will be presenting an exhibition entitled, Picturing the Process: Exploring the Art and Science of Photography. The Industrial Revolution of the nineteenth century brought thousands of commercial and scientific innovations, including photography. Since its infancy, a number of inventors and discoveries have led to the modern state of photography. Utilizing MoPA's permanent collection, this exhibition will examine the ever growing relationship between the field science and the art of photography. Comprised of innovators of the medium, both famous and unknown, this exhibition will include photographic works from the mid-nineteenth to the early twenty-first century.

Contagious!
About Join New York Times Bestselling Author Scott Sigler as he reads from his hard-science thriller Contagious. The sequel to Infected, Contagious follows the spread of a pathogen as it changes normal people into raving mad killers infected by sentient alien parasites. Sigler writes scientifically accurate, action-oriented thrillers all based in real world science: no magic, zombies, vampires, or supernatural elements. In Contagious, he takes a similar concept of a virus hijacking the cellular reproductive system to the macro organic level, and uses it to terraform the human body: reprogramming biologic maintenance systems to turn the infected into human factories that create complex organic Von Neumann Machines. By taking what our bodies do every day (cellular reproduction) and adding robotic self-assembly made biologic, Sigler places science fiction squarely in the realm of real world science.
