Assistant Professor of Computational Design, School of Art, Media, and Technology
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.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 the eyewriter, an open source eye tracker to help a paralyzed graffiti artist draw again. In 2010 he was named one of 100 Creative People in Business by Fast Company Magazine. The eyewriter recently won Design of the Year (Interactive) from the London Design Museum and the Golden Nica (Interactive) from Ars Electronica. In addition to making artistic projects, Lieberman is co-creator of openFrameworks, an open source C++ toolkit for creative coding.
