Animation of Vincent van Gogh's painting " Starry night. AS?

Greek programmer Petros Vrellis has created an animated version of Vincent van Gogh's Starry Night. The question is, how can this be done? Who has what options?

No, I'm not going to make such a picture / just a familiar animator girl asks ...

Purely in theory, most likely, a certain number of types of particles-smears were created, which were then programmed to move-spread from certain points, along a certain trajectory. When the hand moves (this is the interactive part), the trajectory changes temporarily. Read about openFrameworks - this project is written on it and there are other similar works in the examples.

At least put a link...

I see the obvious solution. It is not the painting itself that changes, and the strokes do not move anywhere. Just a transparent layer of small thickness was applied on top of the drawing and the surface of the layer was distorted by waves (like water, in fact). We made the surface change smoothly and along a certain trajectory. The light from the painting is refracted through the surface and the lines appear to move. If you look closely, you can see that the movement of strokes is only imitated. In fact, they remain (return to their place and again move to the side when the surface changes).
It is very possible to do this in 3D-Max, and finish it with masks (so that not the whole picture moves, but only certain parts).
Is it okay? :)

This is graphics, everything that is drawn and posted in free access in some kind of graphic format can be changed.

It looks like transparent particles are superimposed on the picture - they are painted in the color of the substrate. A kind of rasterization, except that instead of a square-nested raster, “strokes” are used. The particles, in turn, move along trajectories.
With a drag drop, the substrate is temporarily stretched and the particle trajectories change at the same time, also temporarily.
The essence of the trick is that the artist's strokes and rectangular particles are similar in shape, so the picture looks "natural".
