About the artist

Zach Lieberman (B. 1977) is an artist and educator based in New York City.

He creates artwork with code, and focus on building experimental drawing and animation tools. He makes interactive environments that invite participants to become performers. The main focus of his work right now is on how computation can be used as a medium for poetry.

As for his background, he has used technology in a playful way to break down the fragile boundary between the visible and the invisible. His artwork focuses on computer graphics, human-computer interaction, and computer vision.

Lieberman’s work has appeared in numerous exhibitions around the world, including Ars Electronica, Futuresonic, CeBIT, and the Off Festival.

He collaborated with artist Golan Levin on the interactive audiovisual project “Messa Di Voce”.

With Theo Watson and Arturo Castro, he created openFrameworks, an open-source C++ library for creative coding and graphics.

Lieberman has held residencies at Ars Electronica Futurelab, Eyebeam, Dance Theater Workshop, and the Hangar Center for the Arts in Barcelona. In 2013, he co-founded the School for Poetic Computation, a hybrid of a school, residency and research group in New York City.
