2012 Hall of Fame Keynote Presenter
Jeff Lieberman – host of the former Discovery Channel series “Time Warp,” M.I.T. roboticist, and accomplished musician – made the Keynote Presentation during the 2012 Da Vinci Science Center Hall of Fame Gala.
Lieberman has been described as a as a “musician wrapped in a roboticist sculptor wrapped in a photographer.” He holds four degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) has been a research assistant in the world-renowned M.I.T. Media Lab. His achievements include development of the Cyberflora installation, a robotic flower garden that senses and responds to people in a lifelike manner.
Lieberman’s work as a photographer and sculptor are acclaimed expressions of science’s connections with the visual arts. His most well-known work is an interactive music-making sculpture titled Absolut Quartet. Lieberman’s skills as a piano player and electronic musician have earned him opportunities to perform at Carnegie Hall, New York, N.Y., and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.
Lieberman hosted “Time Warp” on the Discovery Channel from 2008-2009. Lieberman and photographer Matt Kearney used state-of-the-art technology to create stunning visuals of common and unusual occurrences – ranging from a cat licking its paw to world-class skateboarding tricks and dropping a full-sized car on an egg from a height of 50 feet.
Liberman’s art and science journey began as he grew up in Miami, Fla., where he began playing music at the age of six, loved playing with Legos, and placed at several state mathematics competitions.
