Van Gogh’s Starry Night Transformed Into Touch-Sensitive Interactive Artwork

Van Gogh’s Starry Night Transformed Into Touch-Sensitive Interactive Artwork

Digital artist Petros Vrellis recreates the iconic artwork for the 21st century.

Kyana Gordon

Using openFrameworks, Greek digital artist and electrical engineer, Petros Vrellis, created an interactive version of Vincent van Gogh’s post-impressionist painting, ‘Starry Night’. Swirling patterns of color are set into motion, as a touch-sensitive interface alters the image, animating the night sky by sending the flow of the wind into a different direction. With a MIDI interface, a soft ambient tone accompanies the fluid movements. Watch mesmerized as a classic work of art is transformed into a playful piece of digital art, yet returns to its original glory when left untouched.
