College of the Canyons mathematics professor, George Rhys, has been fascinated by the idea and application of stereoscopy for many years. The study of 3D images is an old one, but many new applications, such as using the concept to study NASA's photographs of Mars, and new understanding about how the brain interprets images have re-energized the topic. The Scholarly Presentation is an annual event in which a COC faculty or staff member formally presents a topic of unique interest to the college community and community at large.
