At the intersection where Computational Science Meets Art
What can a computer do? Besides solving math problems, can it create artwork? Yes, it can! Once I started my major in computer science, I am always curious about what kind of artwork can algorithms generated. For last four years, I explored and created many different forms of artwork using algorithms and code, including image manipulating, abstract art and motion graphics. I will show the artworks I have done with code and demonstrate how I create them.

Yanling He is a computer scientist, photographer and visual artist, best known for her computational graphics art. Yanling’s love in art came from studying computer graphics. Through computer graphics rendering she found the connection of virtual imagination to the real physical world. Her work is always trying to explore the boundary of virtual and real, artificial and natural.
