Cow Eyeball Dissection

Aristotle did it. Da Vinci did it. Damien Hirst did it too.

That's right, all three of them explored the internal anatomy of animals through dissection. Now you can too! 

Delve deep into an understanding about sight and how the eye works through this step-by-step process of the craft and skill of dissecting a cow eyeball. We'll be learning about how animal cadavers are used in the study of fine art and science. And, to top it all off, we’ll end the evening with a short viewing of Salvador Dali’s famous film, Un Chien Andalou. All participants are equipped with their own cow eyeball and dissection kit. Get ready to get up close and personal!

Teacher Bio

Hi my name is Chris and I'm a Graduate student at the University of Toronto, working at The Hospital for Sick Children. During the day, I study the structure and function of proteins using supercomputers and during the night I play jammin' tunes as DJ Spacetime. In the rare moments when I am not writing a research paper, I post on my science imagery blog "Fresh Photons" (, refine my sophisticated palate for Nanaimo bars, and stroke my cat Tina.
