ZACH LIEBERMAN ON AUGMENTING REALITY
Interactive artist Zachary Lieberman knows he’s done his job when he spots open mouths in his audience.
With jaws dropping like a crystal ball on New Year’s during an exploration of his body of work, we declare this mission accomplished.
Lieberman talked us through the ways his art uses technology to explore communication, movement and interaction. In projects like a live performance that visualized the human voice in augmented reality, a car driven typeface, and an eyeball tracker that had a paralyzed graffiti artist drawing again, Lieberman gives shape to the things we can’t see.
We’re no strangers to the practice of relentlessly interrogating reality to uncover new ideas, but this adds a whole new dimension to Fahrenheit 212’s thinking on unlocking hidden assets.
A restless innovator, Lieberman co-created openFrameworks, a toolkit for creative coding and artistic collaboration in an open source environment where shared work matures and finds new applications. He also teaches a course on graphics programming at Parsons School of Design.
