Detailed report on the making of this remarkable dynamic digital sculpture that exhibits commissioned works by artists via an intelligent content library designed to continually transform over time.

NaiveLaser Recreates Natural Phenomena with Lasers

Captured Atmospheres: Interactions Between Light, Smoke and Matter is an ephemeral experience that posits atmosphere as instrument where realtime laser techniques and physical computing create an experience and impression that feels real and indeed elemental.

Tokyo Art City by NAKED

An ambitious and beautifully executed art exhibition composed of projection mapping, illumination and large models of Tokyo's many landmarks. Under the concept of "City is Art" virtual and real Tokyo are synchronized over past, present and future.

Refactor: Audio Visual Installation Questions Cognition

Artist Nikzad Arabshahi had the idea to make the computer paint endless paintings the way he would if he was to paint them himself. This was achieved in real-time through computer renderings in a generative algorithmic composition.

Jonny Konx' Lidar Scanning in the Fulldome: Remote Sense

This realtime fulldome performance is an investigation of Lidar point cloud data that is captured through laser scanners then processed, animated, performed and rendered realtime in TouchDesigner.

In Light and Stillness, The Sublime Artistry of Ali Phi

We talk to the prolific Tehran-based media artist and musician Ali Phi about his beautiful and evocative audiovisual practice and how TouchDesigner is his tool of choice for prototyping and producing the work.

Deep Dream Act 2 | NONE & Andrew Quinn

This installation places the person within the data stream that they themselves produce and share. The viewer "travels" in a continuous stream of data within an n-dimensional 150m2 mirrored 'hypercube' losing all reference to space-time.

TouchDown Houston at Day For Night Festival

A flawless festival in a 1.2 million sq ft venue provided a unique opportunity to experience an ambitious array of installation light and kinetic art. That almost half of these made excellent use of TouchDesigner was icing on the proverbial cake!
