Zach Lieberman, artist and creative technologist, spoke at PSFK CONFERENCE 2013 about his recent project the school for poetic computation. Lieberman works as a media artist, developing tools which utilize new media to form compelling messages, such as a project with Nike which took paths mapped by runners and turned them into a painting. As he says, the goal is to create magic and evoke strange experiences for people.

His recent project, which is set to open within the year, is a collection of artists and teachers who will focus on working with students to use technology to build interactive pedagogical tools. The school for poetic computation, which Lieberman calls an ‘anti-vocational school’, will teach students to share the things they care about far into the world, and is not geared towards helping students find a job, but rather to cultivate creative and inquisitive minds. Overall, his work is designed to demonstrate the ways in which technology can elicit a deep emotional reaction.
