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.
