Dr. Chen in his laboratory at Mt. Sinai Medical Center
Dr. Chun Siang Chen, Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Mt. Sinai Medical Center and co-author of the textbook Microsurgical Anatomy of the Skull Base, will share with us the latest stereo images and techniques that he uses in teaching neuroanatomy to medical students.
The Indoctrination by Rebecca Hackemann
Rebecca Hackemann made her first stereoscope images in 1993. She has created 3D installations around the world, most recently at the Gigantic Art Space in New York last fall. Her work was featured in the January 2006 issue of Stereo World.
After the presentations, members are welcome to share work informally in viewers, on laptops, etc. and enjoy the opportunity to meet and catch up with 3D friends.
