The art of finding inspiration in #Turing

A Royal Society blog post by Cheryl Field called "The art of of finding inspiration" features an art work called "Fellows of the Royal Society: John Maynard Smith, Richard Feynman & Alan Turing." The artist says that "this imposing portrait is wrought from tens of thousands of hand-mounted and tinted, scintillating metallic discs, shimmering gently in a breeze generated by a host of computer fans." Read more about the inspiration behind this art work on the Royal Society blog.
