(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.

Did You Know?

Sometimes you have to see the little picture

UTSA researchers are exploring matter at the atomic level with Helenita. It's one of the most powerful microscopes in the world, with the ability to operate near the theoretical limit of resolution. At 9 feet, 2 inches tall and weighing more than two tons, Helenita can dissect almost anything. With Helenita's resolution, researchers can study particles atom by atom to see how they behave.

That's critical in developing nanotechnology that will help diagnosis early-stage breast cancer or make helmets that are uber strong. Moreover, the detail that Helenita provides will allow nanotechnology researchers to create new therapies and treatments to fight a wide range of human diseases.

Did you know? Helenita can magnify a sample 20 million times its size, which would make a strand of human hair the size of San Antonio.
