Interactive Artwork of the Day: Sick and tired of staring at Van Gogh’s Starry Night and being unable to manipulate it with your fingers? Enter: Greek digital artist Petros Vrellis and his interactive Starry Night animation.
Using openFrameworks, Vrellis transformed Van Gogh’s masterpiece into an interactive painting capable of rearranging itself through touch-sensitive gestures. Additionally, background music responds to changes in the animation’s flow.

This is very cool. I’d love to see it in person. What a neat twist on classic piece of art! (I must say, I LOVE the original too.)
