3D: Optic Wonders from Special Collections, Sandor Teszler Library Gallery

Stereoscopes are making a comeback—Get ready to see the world as it appeared more than 100 years ago! The stereoscope, a small headset-viewer introduced to the public at the 1851 Crystal Palace Exhibition in London, mimics the brain’s ability to combine different perspectives from the left and right eyes to perceive depth. Stereoscopes allow for 3D views that give the illusion of immersion in a scene. Viewers in the 19th and early 20th centuries found themselves transported to faraway locales, luxurious palace interiors, and modern industrial sites. In this exhibition, images from stereographs held in Special Collections are enlarged 1200 percent and converted into anaglyph 3D, viewable with the red-and-blue-lensed glasses provided.



EPHEMERAL FLIGHTS: Works by Jessica Elaine Blinkhorn, Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery

EPHEMERAL FLIGHTS juxtaposes the hyper-sexualized with the desexualized.  The forms are paired with balloons, which function as a surrogate for life. The exhibit is intended to show that form does not matter, and that socially integrated expectations can be damaging to the individual. Through EPHEMERAL FLIGHTS, Blinkhorn shows that life is short and at times unfair, but it still offers opportunities to tell our story.

The Beauty of the Natural World in Pictures and Words, Great Oaks Hall
Come stop by Great Oaks Hall to enjoy the photographic works of biologist Phil Wilkinson and the poems of Libby Bernadine. The exhibition will remain displayed through mid- March. Phil's photographs are up for sale as well, so contact Annie Jones if interested in purchasing a piece. You can join Phil and Libby on Tuesday, March 1, for a reception from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., where the artists will share stories and answer questions about their pictures and poems. Following this, Phil will lead a panel discussion in Milliken 121 to inform students on the joys of field work, discuss his laboratory techniques and research on the reproductive biology of alligators and the population of "sentinel species," as well as introduce exciting opportunities for students to participate in similar research around the South Carolina Coast! You won't want to miss out on this great opportunity!
