Future Sketches invites visitors to reconsider the world of human gesture and amplify them in different ways - making drawings come to life, imagining what the voice might look like if we could see it, transforming peoples silhouettes into music.
This exhibition is the first solo exhibition for Lieberman in Washington D.C., with an emphasis on his eclectic style of sketching with code for creative exploration. The installations draw on over a decade of work and research in the field of media art, exploring how the body, voice and gesture can be transformed in expressive ways.
The title Future Sketches is derived from a letter written by Muriel Cooper, a pioneer at the intersection of design and computation, where in submitting a visual essay, she ended the text This will stand as a sketch for the future. - says Liberman - The work presented here suggests different possible futures for the intersection of computation and design, for human computer interaction and for an expressive augmented reality.
Zach Lieberman is an artist, researcher and educator with a simple goal: he wants visitors to be surprised. In his work, he creates performances and installations that take human gesture as input and amplify them in different ways -- making drawings come to life, imagining what a voice might look like if we could see it, and transforming people's silhouettes into music.
