Research Rendezvous is a monthly lunchtime series for faculty and students to share and learn about research at OCAD U. Come share your ideas, connect with potential collaborators and find out how you can get involved in research.

This month's featured presenters:

David Griffin, Faculty of Art
"Ut Pictura Poesis: Drawing into Space"

In 1735, Leonard Euler presented a solution to the practical problem of whether a route could be plotted to cross each of seven bridges in Königsberg once. His negative solution used the simplest of mark-making strategies to resolve a conceptual problem. Euler did not actually cross the town’s bridges, but used them to resolve questions of connectivity, after which diagrammatic representations can be seen as the restructuring of logical problems to allow for inductive reasoning, for fruitful application beyond theory. But what if such a working graphic has as its target something that is simply incomprehensible? What are the upper limits of the denotational logic of such diagrams?

Michael Page, Faculty of Art
"Three-Dimensional Medical and Scientific Data Viewed in Digital Holographic Form"
The majority of medical and scientific imaging recorded today is 3 dimensional. MRI, CAT scan, PET scan and confocal microscopy are 3D images that are typically viewed in 2D, often as slices or scallops.
OCAD’s PHASE Lab recently received funding from NSERC to research methods of imaging electrical activity (EEG) in the human brain using digital holographic techniques. This project was highly successful and has drawn the attention of the medical community at MARS and Princess Margaret Hospital.
Prof. Michael Page will be showing holograms (created from electrical scans of his own brain), as well as examples of 3D visualization that will soon be rendered holographically.
These holographic images of patient data will bring new knowledge to physicians, surgeons, radiologists and other medical workers. Understanding complex data sets better will save lives.
