Looking Outwards-08

Zach Lieberman is a professor at Parsons School of Design. He studied Fine Arts at Hunter College and received a Masters in Design and Technology from Parsons. He tries to achieve a representation of and tribute to Drawing, Movement, and Magic through his work as a digital media artist. He has created custom drawing tools that do things like uncurl non-straight lines, or allow those with disabilities to draw with their eyes. He also makes drawings interactive and musical. He uses movement in large scale interactive works where people can dial a phone number and appear as a character on a projection that was displayed on a building face. He also helped magicians create illusions, making cards dance and levitate. The project that I admire the most is the drawing software that allowed a paralyzed man to draw with his eyes.
