University of Florida Student Turns Her Exam Notes Into Van Gogh's Starry Night

Van Truong, 19, the creative student who made this collection of notes said,

"I knew if I had to read through a packet of notes, I'd fall asleep," Truong said. "I don't know if I would've lasted through three hours just going through notes."

Truong said she chose to recreate "Starry Night" because of its composition. Unlike a portrait of a person, which she thought would look disjointed if made out of individual lines of biology notes, words and sentences could look like Van Gogh's brush strokes.

One evening when cloudy weather put a halt to his astronomy research, Harvard Ph.D. student Alex Parker was inspired to get creative -- so he uploaded the top 100 images from the Hubble telescope into a mosaic-making program and recreated Van Gogh's iconic 1889 painting.

No big deal.
