The Return celebrates the historic and scientifically groundbreaking restoration of Tullio Lombardo's Renaissance sculpture Adam, which crashed to the Met floor in 2002, shattering into 28 major fragments and hundreds of shards and crumbles. We used live motion capture technology to create a fully interactive theatrical experience.
Below are photos from this remarkable piece, as well as press media and a video excerpt.
