There’s an interesting interview with Zach Lieberman by Karl Willis on the website. Lieberman talks about his work on the Open Frameworks project, which is basically a set of C++ libraries specifically set up for creative work. I haven’t used it, but I imagine it’s a kind of supercharged Processing as it’s running in C++.

One point that I thought was worth pulling out, given the tension between research and arts practice that often exists in universities, was this:

One thing I was interested in, I always try to do this when I’m teaching, is to really preach this idea that artistic practice is research. That really art-making is research in the same way that, science, you know, a physicist is doing research. So I like this idea, when you think about research, research is really built on the work of other people.
