Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Kunst Bauen is an interactive art exhibit, which was a literal art exhibit in Germany in 2008. According to its creator, the app is inspired by both 1980s video games and Bauhaus art. By either swiping your finger or tapping the screen, you can create moving, pulsating grid designs. It is available in both HD and non-HD formats for either iPad or iPhone/iPod, respectively.

Is it any good?


KUNST BAUEN is definitely interesting and can be appreciated from an artistic perspective. But as an interactive app, the experience wears thin quickly. Swiping your finger in one shape or another doesn't really change the result that much.
