OpenFrameworks Developer Series :: Zachary Lieberman
Zachary Lieberman is an artist with a simple goal: he wants you surprised. His work uses technology in a playful way to break down the fragile boundary between the visible and the invisible. Lieberman has held residencies at Ars Electronica Futurelab, Eyebeam, Dance Theater Workshop, and the Hangar Center for the Arts in Barcelona.
Most recently, he helped create visuals for the facade of the new Ars Electronica Museum, wrote software for an augmented reality magic trick, and helped develop an open source eye tracker to help a paralyzed graffiti artist draw again. In addition to making artistic projects, Lieberman is co-creator of openFrameworks, an open source C++ toolkit for creative coding. He teaches at Parsons School of Design.
Openframeworks is a c++ library designed to assist the creative process by providing a simple and intuitive framework for experimentation.
Zachary's lecture was part of the openFrameworks Lecture Series, given at Carnegie Mellon University in January of 2011 and sponsored by the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry.
In association with the first international OpenFrameworks World-Wide Developers Meeting, some of the world’s leading computational artist/developers discussed their pioneering work at the intersection of arts and computer science. During the week, the OpenFrameworks core development team was encamped at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry to advance the next version of OpenFrameworks, a toolkit for new media education and creative coding. Each evening at 5pm, they featured three or four short presentations by members of this team.
