Drawing on a background in anthropology, her work aims to deconstruct the human experience, often treating the human body as a form of media in and of itself. She is a collector of stories and a hacker of cameras, using experimental imaging, audio techniques, game engines and digital fabrication bots to create visual and auditory experiences about scars, intimacy, surrogacy and self-perception. Much of her work explores new ways to tell non-fiction stories. She has created commissioned work for the New York Times and the Magnum Foundation, as well as at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She has also taught new-media non-fiction storytelling, most recently as adjunct faculty in the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and previously at the Print Screen Festival in Tel Aviv and Dutch VR Days in Amsterdam. She holds a master’s degree from ITP. Photo Rebecca Lieberman Director Biography Photo Rebecca Lieberman Rebecca Lieberman is a multidisciplinary designer and artist based in New York.
