For more information please contact Marjorie Roth, Honors Program Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 585-389-2686. The event is sponsored by the Nazareth College Honors Program Distinguished Lecturer Series, in celebration of the opening of Peckham Hall, home of the integrated center for math and science.
Lieberman, who holds degrees from MIT in Physics, Math, Mechanical Engineering, and Media Arts and Sciences, is most known for his position as host of Discover Channel’s hit series Time Warp. He and co-host Matt Kearney, a digital-imaging expert, use new technologies to bring truly never-before-seen wonders into a form that your body can actually process.
Years after graduation, Lieberman returned to MIT to work at the Media Lab in the Robotic Life Group. There he headed design on the Cyberflora installation, a robotic flower garden that senses and responds to people in a lifelike manner, and the Motor Learning Robotic Wearable Suit, a robotic suit that teaches motor skills (dance, sports, rehab, etc). Jeff has also produced kinetic art sculptures, including Absolut Quartet, a music-making machine that incorporates the audience into the performance, and an electromagnetically levitated and wirelessly powered light bulb. Lieberman combines technology and the arts to reach beyond the limits of normal human perception. His compositions and technological sculptures inspire an emotional and mystical connection with the universe.
Nazareth College Arts Center is the Rochester region's premiere mid-size theater and venue for world-class dance, children's theatre and international entertainment. The Arts Center brings to Rochester many of the same shows enjoyed by audiences at New York's Lincoln Center or the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. The 2010 Princeton Review names Nazareth College the 6th Best College Theater in the country (up from #9 in 2009.) The Nazareth College Arts Center is the home of Rochester Children's Theatre and the performance home of Rochester City Ballet and Garth Fagan Dance.
