Computer Science Art Show

Computer Science Art Show

Computer-generated art devised by ingenious novice programmers—Skidmore’s fourth biannual Computer Science Art Show, featuring works created by students in CS106 “Computer Science I,” was recently on display in the dining-hall atrium.

Introduced in 2011 by Leo Porter, assistant professor of computer science, the art show is the culmination of eight weeks of programming for students in the introductory course. This year they were challenged to create art using picture collages or chroma-key (green screen) substitutions.

A total of 17 students, from first-years to seniors, participated in the show. CS 106 is required for those planning to major in computer science, but it often includes students from other disciplines (business, art, music, sciences) who wish to learn about programming as well.

Clarissa Lee ‘16 and Wenting Pan ’16 won Best in Show, and honorable mentions went to Nichloas Feinberg ’13 and Madeline Pelz ’14 and to Alexander Silver ’16 and Carder Welles ‘16.
