::::: STARRY NIGHT INTERACTIVE IN THE NEW MEDIA ART WORLD :::::
"Starry Night interactive" was hosted in various new-media art exhibitions around the world. It was also very positively reviewed by MOMA, Huffington Post, CNET, Engadget, Gizmodo and more:(http://artof01.com/vrellis/works/starry_night.html)

"Very cool! An interactive animation of van Gogh's 'The Starry Night'."
MoMA - The Museum of Modern Art of New York (https://www.facebook.com/MuseumofModernArt/posts/238626772889437)

"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."
Huffington Post (https://www.huffpost.com/entry/petros-vrellis-starry-night-interactive_n_1269226)

"We find Vrellis' interactive piece enchanting - and even, given Van Gogh's tragic story, emotionally powerful."
C|NET (https://www.cnet.com/culture/interactive-canvas-lets-viewers-stir-van-goghs-starry-night/)

"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."
Engadget (https://www.engadget.com/2012-02-14-interactive-starry-night.html)

"The effect is so beautiful and mesmerising."

::::: VAN GOGH'S MASTERPIECE STARRY NIGHT :::::
The Starry Night is an oil painting by the Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Painted in June, 1889, a year before his death, it depicts the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, just before sunrise. Starry night is regarded as among Van Gogh's finest works, and one of the most recognized monuments in the history of Western culture.
Van Gogh' himself wrote about "Starry night": "Looking at the stars always makes me dream. Why, I ask myself, shouldn't the shining dots of the sky be as accessible as the black dots on the map of France? Just as we take the train to get to Tarascon or Rouen, we take death to reach a star."

Free version has almost no functionality. As far as I could tell, it was like a little flashlight over a gif. Maybe the paid version has more going on, but based on the limited capacity of the free version I was not at all motivated to spend money on the full version.
