(Oct. 31, 2012) -- The UTSA Satellite Space and the UTSA Department of Art and Art History, will present "Repetition and Ritual," an exhibit of photography, video and fabric works by Julie Ledet, and "Life is an Electric Whip," an exhibit of sculpture and installation works by Ivan Salcido. Free and open to the public, the exhibits will run Nov. 1-18.

>> Opening receptions are 6-9 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 1 and First Friday, Nov. 2.

Ledet's M.F.A. thesis exhibition includes photographs, a photographic installation, a video installation, a performance video and fabric works with narratives that expose the spectrum of emotions, rituals and repetitious behaviors derived from obsessive compulsive tendencies. The work largely represents a self-initiated healing process that resembles the superstitious and sacred rituals experienced in Southern Louisiana culture.

Salcido"s exhibit draws inspiration from architecture, urban construction sites and an array of found objects. The discarded, commonplace objects and industrial materials are transformed into sculptures and installations built on the poetic reality of their original purpose. The balance between scale and mass and the interaction of the thrown-away objects and live, electrical components work together to bring something new to life. Salcido manipulates a space by evoking a precarious equilibrium of objects that are at home in the gallery, a domestic environment or even an alley.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
