Analogue vs Digital: Interactive Van Gogh

Did Vincent van Gogh ever imagine his paintings would be sold for millions? Sure he didn’t think of the fact that this painting from 1889 would be interactive, and available in the Appstore. Yes, you can touch this painting!

Petros Vrellis has created an interactive visualization and synthesizer that animates Van Gogh's Starry Night. A fluid simulation gently creates a flowing fabric from Van Gogh's impressionist portrait of the Milky Way and night sky using the thick paint daubs as the particles within the fluid. With a simple touch you can deform the image, altering both the flow of the particles and the synthesized sound, and then watch it slowly return to its original state.
