It's reminiscent of the moving portraits from Harry Potter, or tumblr gifs. We've already seen digital photo frames being sold through public retailers. But now we go one step further.
Living paintings. What Rob and Nick Carter (not the Backstreet Boy, sorry fangirls) have done is no mere digital copy of Ambrosius Bosschaert's Dead Frog With Flies. They have literally brought it to life by animating a three hour sequence and rendering it to look like the original oil painting. The flies buzz around, the maggots appear and slowly the poor frog decomposes into its skeletal frame.
Fabulous. Looking forward to having my own moving Dumbledore replica portrait for Christmas next year.
