Open Frameworks and Creative Coding

Posted on Thursday, Jan 7, 2021
Rob and Jason are joined by Zach Lieberman, professor at MIT’s Media Lab and co-founder of the School for Poetic Computation. They first talk about Herb Sutter’s 2020 wrap up blog post and the ISO mailing from December 2020. Then Zach discusses Open Frameworks, a C++ toolkit he co-created 10 years ago for creative coding.

Zachary Lieberman

Zachary Lieberman is an artist, researcher, and educator 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 and teaches at the School for Poetic Computation, a school examining the lyrical possibilities of code. He’s also a professor at MIT’s Media Lab, where he runs the Future Sketches group.
