Zachary Lieberman is an artist, researcher and teacher 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.   

Molmol Kuo has a background in documentary film making, she began to focus on conversations and story telling as a young art worker.   With a penchant of  “doing weird things with electricity”,  she builds tools that help her tell stories and make art that breaks the barriers between human and object in a whimsical and surprising way.  

Her ongoing research focus on designing interactive art for public spaces with children.  She is developing a series of children’s workshops and exhibitions around this research. Molmol received an M.P.S.  at the Interactive Telecommunications Program, NYU.
