  1. Cool idea. I was a bit annoyed by the “pan-and-scan” video, though. I would have preferred just to see the whole image.

    I once took mushrooms and saw this painting at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. This is exactly what it looked like.

    This music is not so great. Country Teasers, maybe.

  4. Reminds me a little of this Martin Wattenberg site from 1997 -

  5. When Tom Brigham was working out some of the details to morphing back in the 80s, he animated smeared UV coordinates before mapping this painting to a similar effect.

  6. I never realized this painting wasn’t already kinetic… now the original will seem boring by comparison.

    A truly inspired 21st century redux.

    I thought the Second Life version of “Starry Night” was even better, back in the day.  You could wander the streets of the painting!

    Congrats Petros Vrellis for carrying forward the dream seen by Van Gogh and thanks Roger Weiss for evincing it. Art never has any constraint, it’s a free flowing expression. Artist develops a universe around the concept. It’s like a black hole that grapples, gratifies and swallows viewers mind. Viewer’s freedom is also deliberate act of an Artist to play with viewer’s mind. Don’t u think same things happen with us in real world…
