When Tulane scientists take their research and use it to generate computer art, it makes quite a creative display. The images, some colorful, others with complex graphics, illustrate research from such fields as biology, physics, genetics and engineering.

The Center for Computational Science holds the annual art show to feature images produced by students, researchers and faculty.

Computer Art

“Folding Surface” is by Ricardo Cortez, the Pendergraft William Larkin Duren Professor in the math department and director of the Center for Computational Science.
