Analogue vs Digital: Interactive Van Gogh

NextNature.net
April 13th 2015

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.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
