Presented by Digital Art Week

Verse is delighted to partner with Digital Art Week to present the work of Zach Lieberman as a public installation, exhibited at Outernet, one of Europe's largest wrap-around LED screens. Lieberman’s work explores what colour can do, and how it can affect us in various ways. While his work mostly explores this on a two-dimensional plane, here Lieberman created a site-specific piece that responds directly to Outernet’s spatial layout to create a fully immersive experience that respects the geometry of the 3D space.

In the space, his signature circular motifs radiate out from a central point directly above the audience. They cascade around viewers as if enclosing them within a sphere of pure color, luminous pixels designed to excite the senses and induce emotion. The emotional impact initiated by particular combinations of color and form is one of Lieberman’s primary interests and focal points of his practice.

His piece for Outernet was created primarily using a C++ shader programming tool co-developed by Lieberman himself. It is a loop lasting 4 minutes and 30 seconds, accompanied by a soundtrack composed by Daito Manabe, a musician with whom Lieberman has collaborated numerous times in the past including the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
