Video: Starry Night

For today’s Friday break, a video by Petros Vrellis that demonstrates an interactive iPad application of Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”.  Is this a glimpse of a future where visitors can explore collections in new ways?

    The genius of Van Gogh is that he was able to convey the beauty of the starry night and evoke an emotional response with paint. I am concerned that we are heading for a time when reality has to be enhanced with technological tricks in order to be appreciated. Will we become helplessly insensitive without kiosks and ipad apps?

    I used to stand in front of a wavy mirror at the fair and change my appearance. Technology is great fun but ultimately it does not improve the beauty of a piece of original creative genius. (Unless it Pixar)
