Van Gogh's Starry Night Is Alive!
Petros Vrellis, artist and programmer, has brought Van Gogh's painting, Starry Night, to life. Utilizing a particle systems approach, Vrellis enables interaction by user touch to affect the dynamic fluid field the brushstroke reside in. The result is a painting that seems alive via touch. The accompanying sound is generated by sampling the fluid movement via MIDI, creating an atmospheric ambient score.
I wish this was on the iPad.
