Seems like Van Gogh's famous work of art "Starry Night" inspires experimentation not only in painting, but also in animated short films. Greek artist Petros Vrellis proves this by taking the painting off the canvas and convert it into a touch-sensitive interactive animation . He affirmed that the video is: “a try to visualize the flow of the famous painting “Starry Night” of Vincent Van Gogh. The user can interact with the animation. Also, the sound responds to the flow..” says Vrellis. Now isn't that great? Not only is it beautiful to look at, though, it’s also responsive! One of the most striking aspects is that the painting almost appears to swirl in dreamy delight even in its original form, but with some help from Petros and "OpenFrameworks", this dream actually  becomes a reality. 

Now, me want it! Me want it bad! So please, pretty pleaseeee make this an Android app asap!!
