Van Gogh is alive

I think this is a great tool for kids to learn about art.

Petros Vrellis, who is a greek artist and electrical engineer, has created an interesting interactive animation of Vincent van Gogh’s painting “The Starry Night”.
The visualization sends the paint daubs of the Saint-Rémy night sky into swirling patterns of motion. A touch interface allows viewers to alter the image, changing both the flow and the sound. When not touched, the visualization will return to its natural state.

Settings for the velocity and music composition, both designed to resonate with Van Gogh’s original artwork.

It is absolutely beautiful, a new piece of art using technology.
