An amazing left right marriage
Toronto is this week hosting a very special event that brings together Science and Art in a unique embrace called, Illuminate 2012. This is the 67th annual Association of Medical Illustrators Meeting. A blend of the synthesizing right brain deep meeting left brain analysis.
Check out the Friday theme…
Friday, July 27th:
From hard facts to imagined worlds, the focus will be on Scientific Visualization Ben Fry will begin the day by examining how visualization can help us cope with the ever increasing flood of data with the unchanging processing capacity allotted to each of us in his presentation, “Big Data, Little Brain”.
James Gurney will continue the discussion by examining how we draw that which we can’t see: translating imaginative ideas into realistic images.
Bryan Christie will talk to us about the true potential of 3D modeling and rendering in medical illustration. Friday afternoon will take us on an exploration of brain atrophy imaging, design principles in communication strategies and visualization software development, tools for building complex 3D molecular worlds, and examples of biomedical doctoral research.
