DevArt Artist Feature: Zach Lieberman

Over the next few weeks, we'll be featuring each of the commissioned DevArt artists that will be showing their work at the +Barbican Centre as part of the #DigitalRevolution .

Zach is an artist and educator who creates installations and performances investigating audiovisual expression and new forms of drawing.

His #DevArt installation celebrates the enchanting, global soundscape that surrounds us. Code has been used to find musical notes from hundreds of live radio stations around the world and Lieberman has matched those notes to corresponding keys played on the keyboard.

No two presses of the same key on the keyboard will ever be the same, resulting in a unique piece of music every time. The speakers and displays are arranged in a circle, so you can see where in the world the sounds are coming from. Play the keyboard and discover the sounds of the world: http://goo.gl/VBvHbZ

How do you get young people interested in coding?

Over the course of this week, Zach has introduced 150 new students to computer coding and art with hands-on activities, they've even made their very first musical creation with code.

In Autumn, #DevArtYoungCreators workshops will be turned into lesson plans and made public for everybody - learn more here: http://goo.gl/eqPsm2

+Jon Knight They are less interested when not given the opportunity early on. As well as, negativity from the environment they are in. Including, parents working 40 hours a week and can not afford the economy prices. There is also not enough low cost clubs or programs that these kids can get into outside large cities...so many things but it can be tackled by 3's if the funding is available upon the commissioner..yes indeed

Get young people excited about creativity and code.

This week we're launching #DevArt Young Creators; an education component for schools, youth groups and code clubs, designed to inspire a new generation of coders through the lens of creativity - especially for those who have never tried coding before.

The first phase of DevArt Young Creators is a 3 week series of creative workshops for schools, youth groups and code clubs, led by the DevArt interactive artists, Zach Lieberman, Karsten Schmidt and duo Varvara and Mar, in collaboration with Google and the +Barbican Centre

The sessions will include hands-on activities giving them the opportunity to make their very first creation with code: a digital butterfly, a piece of music, or a 3D-printed art piece.

Take a look and discover more here: http://goo.gl/eqPsm2
