藝術小精靈|The Little Art Elves

這段日子我們待在家裡也夠悶了,不但不能去旅行,不少展覽更取消了,但這也不代表在家中沒有樂趣,因為Google 藝術與文化推岀了五個嶄新文化網上互動遊戲,讓大家能在家中陶冶性情,展開一趟藝術旅程。

Quarantine at home leaves us bored and unmotivated. Not only are we not allowed to travel, quite a number of exhibitions have also been cancelled. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun. With so many artifacts and historic treasures from museums and cultural institutions around the world to explore on Google Arts & Culture.

Google 藝術與文化的遊戲無論大人小朋友也能享受,玩法精簡又不失教育元素,包括以色彩為主的 Color Hunt;創作音樂的 Assisted Melody;從你的草圖認識藝術的 Draw to Art;由小企鵝為大家擔當虛擬導遊的 Hopper, the penguin explorer,以及在書海中穿梭航行的 An Ocean of Books,透過無限創意為大家帶來有趣而富有教育意義的歷史和文化體驗。只要在電腦到訪開啟 Google 藝術與文化的網頁,或是在手機及平板電腦開啟 Google 藝術與文化應用程式(Android 及 iOS 皆可),就能與藝術小精靈一同體驗文藝國度!

Five new experiences for culture lovers of all ages dive into the collections. Reimagine the world’s most famous paintings in your own color palette  with “Color Hunt”. Ready for a jam session with none other than the master of harmonisation himself? Check out “Assisted Melody.” which helps you to create music in the style of Bach. If it’s a virtual round-the-world tour you’re after, team up with Hopper, our penguin guide. Want to flex your creative muscles? Doodle around with “Draw to Art” and see your sketches transform into artworks.

重新製作經典名畫:Color Hunt

有沒有想過為經典名畫重新上色?Color Hunt 讓你能以全新方式欣賞四周環境,利用相機捕捉色彩元素,為你最愛的畫作換上全新色調。就好像”The Starry Night”會將變色龍從藍色的天空變成紫色。這個程式不單會嘗試貼近作品的原有顏色,更利用不同環境去創作和比較不同的作品,對藝術教育者和小朋友來說,既有教育意義又好玩。還有一個互動功能:可以向朋友發出挑戰,揀選指定物品類別為畫作重新上色。

An exclusive remake of classic paintings: Color Hunt

Have you ever studied a painting and wondered how it would look with a different color palette? With Color Hunt, you can use colors in your own environment to recreate existing artworks, giving yourself a new perspective on the work as well as your own surroundings.

See! the skies of “The Starry Night” is no longer in blue.

與巴哈合奏:Assisted Melody

即使你不懂音樂,也能與巴哈合奏。透過 Assisted Melody, 你可以揀選不同的演奏樂器和節奏,在五線譜上自由創作旋律,完成後按下播放鍵,系統便會自動將你的旋律融入至古典作曲家巴哈的音樂風格中,生成獨一無二的優美樂章!小編嘗試了把奇怪的音符胡亂地放在一起,居然能變成一首酷似巴哈詠嘆調的巴洛克時代作品!

A concert with Bach: Assisted Melody

Have you ever wanted to collaborate with Bach on a composition? Now’s your chance: Assisted Melody allows you to compose your own tune on a virtual sheet of music, and with the click of a button make it sound like Bach. No musical knowledge required, the machine already learns algorithm on the composer’s choral works.

Press the piano keys randomly, then your melody will appear on the score.
Can’t believe I am really making music with Bach!

回歸草圖:Draw to Art

很多經典藝術作品的第一步都是由一幅草圖開始。Draw to Art 讓你可以自由發揮創意,以不同形狀繪出草圖,然後利用機器學習找出最相似的油畫、素描或雕塑作品等,助你發掘和認識收藏在各地的藝術作品。把不同形狀拼湊在一起,你會發現畫作最原始的一面。

The power of sketching: Draw to Art

Many great works of art started as a sketch, but has a sketch ever been used to search for art? If you’re not sure what that even means, try out Draw to Art. It uses machine learning to match your doodles to paintings, drawings and sculptures with similar shapes. Sketch whatever forms come to mind and see what artworks you discover. You will be surprised by the original form of artworks!

Everything start with sketches. It turns out drawing isn’t that hard, right?

來一趟虛擬旅行:Hopper the penguin 

在這段不能去旅行的日子,就跟隨活潑的小企鵝來一趟虛擬環遊世界吧!讓小企鵝化身為你的專屬導遊,由吉薩的金字塔到巴黎鐵塔,走到世界各地最美麗的地方。你還可以為小企鵝拍照「打卡」,為這個虛擬旅途留下最美一刻。從泰姬陵到萬里長城也不足三秒,還可以到世界各地的博物館欣賞奇珍異寶!

你真的認識福爾摩斯嗎?Ocean of Books 

喜歡追求知識的你,必定會喜歡這個程式,您可以發掘不同學科的冷知識以及關於世界各地的名作家的小故事。例如福爾摩斯原来從不會說這句電影金句「這再簡單不過了,我親愛的華生。」 而美國諾貝爾文學獎得主、作家約翰·史坦貝克的人鼠之間手稿曾經被小狗吃掉。讓我們化身成為探索家,打開這個夢幻地圖並在一遍書海中穿梭航行,探索 Google 圖書內收藏的書籍,從中學習有趣小知識和欣賞珍貴手稿。
