Topic: Daily sketching

Abstract:
This talk will focus on the daily sketches with code and creative projects that have come out of that sketching. Since Jan 1 2016 I’ve been posting 1 sketch per day and exploring how code can be used to make poetry. In this talk I’ll share some of what I’ve learned. I will also talk about the school for poetic computation, an experimental school I help run in New York City.

About the Speaker:
Zachary Lieberman is an artist, researcher and hacker with a simple goal: he wants you 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 the voice might look like if we could see it, transforming people’s silhouettes into music.

He’s been listed as one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People and his projects have won the Golden Nica from Ars Electronica, Interactive Design of the Year from Design Museum London as well as listed in Time Magazine’s Best Inventions of the Year. He creates artwork through writing software and is a co-creator of openFrameworks, an open source C++ toolkit for creative coding and helped co-found the School for Poetic Computation, a school examining the lyrical possibilities of code.
