Pixaloop. Once in a while you find a gem. Pixaloop offers a clever way to add mesmerising animations to photos and paintings. The example above shows how Westminster in the Moonlight by John Atkinson Grimshaw (1880) can be turned into a moody loop with the flowing river Thames and drifting clouds. The animation is defined by the combination of vector strokes and fix points that do not move at all.
Artivive. Well, what’s going on here? This is a screenshot of Artivive, while augmenting the reality as displayed on my computer screen – showing a photo of a painting by Paul Delvaux at Albertina in Vienna. Of course, the original intent is to use your mobile phone or tablet while exploring the museum. Surprising - fun - interactive – if the piece of art has been prepared to be animated with Artivive.
