Happy Returns is a collaborative partnership between Tom Burtonwood and Cody Norman which attempts to redefine the historic tension between the handmade and the industrially produced object. Both artists are adept at cutting edge technologies in 3D printing, robotics, and programming; and here they use these mass production technologies to create one of a kind objects with a nod to historic precedents. Happy Returns is both a play on “returning” or recycling physical materials such as plastic or paper and on “returning” code for controlling robots and similar tools.
