Since 2002, Zachary Lieberman and Golan Levin have worked together as TMEMA, a flexible collaborative unit that develops interactive performances, museum installations, web-based information visualizations, reactive commercial environments, and experimental software systems which meld high-end computation to deeply-rooted sensibilities in human-centred arts and design. At the heart of their art and research is a two-pronged fascination with human gesture and visual abstraction. In this presentation, Zach and Golan present a wide range of collaborative and solo projects which explore the intersection of these areas. The talk concludes with a brief presentation about openFrameworks, an open-source C++ toolkit which they and others now use to make all of their work.
For all audiences, especially fans of high-bandwidth interactive techniques.
A glimpse, maybe, of possible near futures (and near misses!) in interactive art and design.
