Artistic Endeavors – Moving Art

Historically, art works capture a static moment in time, but what if they could move?

This article from Hyperallergenic shows how New Mexico-based web and educational software developer Simone Seagle has been transforming iconic works by artists like Paul Klee and Claude Monet into interactive animations. Her ability to do this has been aided greatly by the digital collections museums are making available.

Seagle’s animation don’t just move. You can affect how they move with your mouse. She talks about the specifics of her manipulations here.

You can read the coding specifics of Seagle’s creations and play with them here. My favorite is “Cat Watching A Spider.”

    This is always fun to see our old beloved masterpieces of art, fancied up with creativity
    Some people might be offended, but I like it.
    You know of the book Thus Spoke Zarathustra?

    This is a very creative site with the all knowing, big puss, Zarathustra.

  2. SO cool! I like the Kandinsky and that super-creepy photo gallery, too!
