The same 3D data were used for creating the 3D screen and visuals. After creating the screen 3D model in Blender, the resulting data took two separate paths (3D screen and animation) that were connected again at the end of process. Initial animation sketches were made with Quartz Composer. Later openFrameworks was used for creating the visual content, VDMX was used as GUI. MadMapper software was used to map it to the surface. Syphon and OSC were used for connecting all software parts. Cycling '74 Max and Ableton Live were used for the sound.
