Turtle pond is a piece produced with style transfer, blending a photo of familiar Caltech scenery with the style of pioneering Brazilian modernist artist Tarsila do Amaral. One of our current research projects is concerned with characterizing visual artwork with computer vision methods - of which style transfer is an important example. Tarsila's work is known for representing elements of Brazilian folkore and nature. Her piece "A Cuca" (1924) was chosen as a style guide, and it infuses our beloved turtle pond with vibrant colors and lush vegetation. We believe that this piece represents not only the art of science but also the science of art.
