The view outside his sanitarium room window at night has become one of Vincent van Gogh’s most recognizable paintings. With the use of some fancy C++ programming, Greek artist Petros Vrellis imagines The Starry Night as if it were a moving and interactive piece of art.
The animation comprises some 80,000 swirly “particles” that are responsive to the touch. The music too responds to the flow of the animation. Watch as Vrellis touches The Starry Night.
