Super Secret
Science + Art Society

Forget what you learned in high school science class, Bio 101 or Foundation Year Life Drawing. This is no ordinary introduction. Inspired by NYC’s Secret Science Club, Action Potential Lab brings you Toronto’s exclusive Super Secret Science + Art Society. Meetups are held once-a-month inside the lab. Each SSSAS meeting will mix science + art into every project. Topics include beer brewing, hologram making, molecular gastronomy and dissections. We’ve already said too much! Become a member by attending these events and challenge your 5 senses.

Meeting One:
Cow's 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! In our inaugural Super Secret Science + Art Society meeting, we will be learning about how animal cadavers are used in the study of fine art and science. Thereafter, we will be guided through the step-by-step process into the craft and skill of dissecting a cow eyeball. We’ll end with a short viewing of Salvador Dali’s famous film, Un Chien Andalou.

*All cow eyes have been ethically sourced for educational purposes.

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.
