Zachary Lieberman (US/New York)

workshop module G. Leaving the Screen: Programming for Interactive/Reactive Systems

http://www.openframeworks.cc/ (external link)

Zachary Lieberman's work uses technology in a playful and enigmatic way to explore the nature of communication and the delicate boundary between the visible and the invisible. He creates performances, installations, and on-line works that investigate gestural input, augmentation of the body, and kinetic response. Working with collaborator Golan Levin, he created a series of installations - "Remark" and "Hidden Worlds" - which presented different interpretations of what the voice might look like if we could see our own speech. These were followed with "Messa Di Voce," a concert performance in which the speech, shouts and songs of two abstract vocalists were radically augmented in real-time by interactive visualization software. The collaborators were recently nominated for Wired magazine's artist of the year award and have toured and exhibited their works widely, much to the delight of their audiences.

Lieberman has held artist residencies at Ars Electronica Futurelab, Eyebeam, and most recently at Dance Theatre Workshop, where he investigated how technology might be used to aid the choreographic process.
