Exploring our rapidly changing relationships to one another and the world around us in an age dominated by technology, Return to the Real featured a animated LED sculpture and coordinated audio piece.

To help the artist work in a more streamlined fashion and introduce newer technology to their pipeline a unique Touchdesigner visualizer of the experience was developed that allowed for seamless transition into the the performance piece. A single system that served as both visualizer and performance toolkit was developed.

A second round of work ported the whole system onto a much more portable and reusable raspberry Pi control system
