Man needs space

Floating around on our little rock in big, empty space, it’s only natural that the human race gets a little lonely. “Terrestrial Transmissions” is a gallery show inspired by this intergalactic longing for company, examining and interpreting the various attempts throughout history to communicate with the “alien other” through not only technology, but also telepathy (hey, it’s worth a shot, right?). The exhibition features artists from around the world and explores some of the earmarks of science fiction through video, giving viewers the opportunity to observe them in a gallery setting.

Through 2/22 Free, 5:30pm. Ruffin Gallery, 179 Culbreth Rd. 924-6123.
