"Very cool! An interactive animation of van Gogh's 'The Starry Night'."
MoMA - The Museum of Modern Art of New York (facebook page)
"Imagine being Vincent Van Gogh. Imagine giving form to 'Starry Night' with your hands. ... Playing the artist instead of the observer is now possible. ... As the viewer drags his finger across the painting, the dashed oil lines react, creating a river-like effect of blues and golds over the night sky. With each brushstroke movement, a soft note of ambient music rings out as well. The work that went into creating such an elaborate piece of art is impressive. Vrellis took a piece with a seemingly unsurpassable amount of artistic merit, and breathed new life into it."
"We find Vrellis' interactive piece enchanting - and even, given Van Gogh's tragic story, emotionally powerful."
"Van Gogh's Starry Night modded into beautiful interactive light and sound show. …This is one of those little projects you wish you could just play with the second you've seen it."
"The effect is so beautiful and mesmerising."
"Beauty through simplicity at its finest and most playful."
