OK, I’ll admit it. I’m sort of obsessedwithVincent van Gogh’sThe Starry Night. I just can’t get enough of the sweeping wind patterns that are prevalent in this piece of incredible art. This is one of the reasons why I’m always happy to find recreations, tributes, and reinterpretations of one of Van Gogh’s most beautiful pieces. Noah Gibbs, also known as ~SirNosh, is behind this amazing homage to The Starry Night.
I don’t remember exactly when I started obsessing about The Starry Night, but needless to say that this is one painting that I find unforgettable, especially when it comes to the swirling wind patterns in the sky. I guess I’m not the only one because one artist decided to recreate tan intricate version of the image using paper as her medium.
Remember that gorgeous Interactive Starry Night? It certainly put a high tech spin on one of Van Gogh’s most inspiring works. It’s one of my favorite pieces of art, especially the wind. Initially, I wondered if the guy who made it would release it for other platforms so that more people could enjoy it. I guess the crowd’s clamor won, as it was just released for iOS.
The famous Dutch impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh was obsessed with sunflowers, until he died in 1890. His iconic paintings of sunflowers fetch millions of dollars at auction. Scientists have been trying to solve the genetic origin of the mutant teddy bear sunflowers that are depicted in van Gogh’s canvases.
This incredible visualization of the Earth and its oceans was created by the Scientific Visualization Studio at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. It’s called Perpetual Ocean and allows the visualization of the surface of the oceans over a 30-month period, between June 2005 and December 2007.
