Interactive Painting Lets Viewers Move Seemingly Static Objects

“Still Life” uses Motion sensing technology to animate the painted image when the frame is tilted and moved.

Digital artist and developer, Scott Garner gives traditional art a new spin with his interactive installation, Still Life. Built using Unity 3D, Garner connected a custom-framed flat screen television with a motion-sensitive screen to a rotating mount. The scene itself features a spatial sensor attached to the mount, so the objects rotate in unison. As a result, the fruit and vase of the seemingly ordinary still life painting begin to tumble when the frame is tilted. Entertaining, it’s a nice and welcomed update to a classic artistic tradition. Watch the video below to see how the static still life comes alive.
