Zach Lieberman: Physical And Digital Tools Converge

About the Video

Artist Zach Lieberman is one of the key masterminds behind YesYesNo, and an essential figure in the community of artists working at the forefront of media and technology. As one of the founders of openFrameworks, a C++ coding toolkit and global creative community, Lieberman is considered something of a sensei when it comes to media art.

He makes projects that continually locate the human in technology, focusing on gesture and storytelling and bringing elements of play, performance, and magic (in fact, he's even worked with a magician) to today's most cutting-edge tech tools.
