Art and Physics Combine in UI First-Year Seminar

Thursday, February 17, 2022
In a featured article in the American Journal of Physics, Professor Yannick Meurice describes how he spurred interest in physics and computer science among artistically inclined students. In his first-year seminars, Prof. Meurice worked with the students to alter the pixels of pictures using the Ising model of magnetism to add an interesting “texture” to an existing work of art, such as a painting or photograph.
