Entering the darkened Projects Gallery in the Salt Lake Art Center you are met with a wall-size projection of a serene underwater landscape that is suddenly displaced when a fully clothed man plunges into the water from above. Accompanied by a roar of sound and a luminous explosion of bubbles and turbulence, he slowly sinks with arms outstretched, his body limp and motionless. Rays of light undulate as streams of glowing bubbles ascend to the disturbed surface. Midway down, his descent slows and finally stops, his body remaining suspended in space. Is the man dead or alive? He does not move, but the water moves him. Very slowly, he begins to rise until he reaches the surface. There, air bubbles emerge from his mouth and he begins his involuntary descent again. He sinks into the depths and his body then disappears into the darkness. The landscape returns to its original peaceful state. Then, unexpectedly, the man plunges into the water again with a shocking explosion of light, sound and movement, as the video loops once more.

Mark Hedengren: The Invincibility Fable - Exhibition Views
The Invincibility Fable is a survey of over 30 color photographs taken from his series Cliff Jumpers, a project that spanned nearly two years while Hedengren traveled across the nation. Exhibition held in the Locals Only Gallery space.
This exhibition examines through the work of thirty individual artists, both historic and contemporary, a myriad of personal interpretations of this intriguing and basic element of our existence. Many of the images are sublime, still others are confusing or mysterious. All are intriguing and reflect the continual change characteristic of this non-static substance - WATER. The viewer should be challenged by the content of each individual work and how the artist has interpreted, appropriated or utilized water as and illusion, metaphor or subject. Simultaneously each person should be encouraged to reflect on their current appreciation and understanding of the theme of this exhibit. Awareness of this powerful, unique element is essential especially to those of us living in the arid west. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space.
Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers and Armored Corps personnel work together on the repair and maintenance of an APC. Supporting Armour - Engineers: Engineers carried many responsibilities in Vietnam, among them the construction of roads, water supply and reticulation, civil aid projects that could include building schools, installing windmills and maintaining roads and bridges, many of which were destroyed by the enemy more than once during the war. One of their more hazardous tasks, however, was mine clearing. These hidden weapons were the cause of many Australian casualties in Vietnam and armored vehicles were particularly vulnerable. The danger grew as the war went on and on occasions such as Operation Renmark in February 1967 the havoc that mines could wreak was made tragically clear. To counter the threat mini-teams from the Royal Australian Engineers (RAE) were allocated to armored troops on operations. These men had a particularly dangerous duty, sitting on the front of an armored vehicle looking out for signs of mines which, if they were located, then entailed the nerve-wracking task of defusing any anti-lift devices and neutralizing the mine. Also vital to the successful prosecution of armored operations was the work of the Royal Australian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (RAEME). While crews were able to carry out certain essential maintenance tasks in the field, RAEME personnel were the mainstay of vehicle repair, they kept the armored vehicles operational. RAEME sub-units operated as part of a Royal Australian Armored Corps Regiment of Squadron and were known as Light Aid Detachments (LADs). LADs included those in the main support section that generally worked at the Task Force Base and sections allocated to each armored troop. Each LAD was under the command of an Artificer Sergeant Major who would also advise armored personnel on repairs and maintenance schedules and would also supervise the work of tradesmen. Repairs were often carried out in the field under all manner of conditions and in a wide range of environments. Being in the field meant that RAEME personnel were just as likely as any soldier in the combat arms to encounter the enemy and in addition to working on all types of vehicles, not just armor, they too had to be ready to engage the enemy should the need arise. At times some of their number volunteered to replace wounded crew members so that vehicles could get back into action quickly. To carry out their repair work LADs employed a variety of tools including specially modified APCs equipped with cranes, welding equipment and storage space in which spare parts were carried to avoid having to wait for much needed items to be brought to vehicles in the field. Heavier items were commonly brought to the site of break-downs or repairs by helicopter. Speed was often of the essence, as a disabled armored vehicle offered a tempting target for the enemy.

01 Jan 1966, Vietnam: In this 1966 photo, water-filled bomb craters from B-52 strikes against the Viet Cong mark the rice paddies and orchards, west of Saigon, Vietnam. B-52s were one arm of the nuclear deterrent force during the Cold War and were used in the carpet-bombings of North Vietnam. During the 1991 Gulf War, they dropped 40 percent of the ordnance on Iraq.
