NAME: Animated Kandinsky

AUTHOR: Nivetha Kannan and Sarah Kwan, fine arts students at Carnegie Mellon University.

DESCRIPTION: Painted in 1932, Wassily Kandinsky’s abstract painting “Decisive Pink” gets a digital makeover where gamification is used to give a better understanding of the forces at work within the canvas. As soon as the “player” clicks on a form, it produces a different sound and animation. Some animations remain abstract but others venture into figuration, like the two triangles becoming a small dog.

AMUSEMENT RATE: Abstract art can appear quite impenetrable to people who do not have the keys to understand the artworks. “Animated Kandinsky” could be the perfect program to resolve this issue. Interactivity and animation are here used to reveal the underlying sense of movement that exists in each one of Kandinsky’s paintings. While it is only a student project for now, some museums should really look into Nivetha Kannan and Sarah Kwan’s idea and develop it into an educational program that would familiarize people with art.
