Early life and education
Lieberman earned two bachelor's degrees, in Mathematics and Physics, and two master's degrees, in Mechanical Engineering and Media Arts & Sciences with a focus in Robotics, all from MIT. He has taken a leave of absence from pursuing a PhD due to the demands of filming. Before his leave, he worked in the MIT Media Lab in Cynthia Breazeal's Personal Robots Group.
He has made many technological sculptures, which resulted in him starting his design firm Plebian Design.
He also successfully launched art projects on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter. "One thing that I don’t want to do as an artist is inflate the prices of my work to artificially make them more valuable. Often artists do this in order to make a living; so I wanted to figure out another alternative." he said, explaining why he chose Kickstarter for one of his projects. His first Kickstarter project was Moore Pattern, and a second one, Slow Dance was later converted into an ongoing product. Both projects appear to be minimalist, but incorporate a deep understanding of human visual perception.
After the success of a Kickstarter project, Lieberman decided to offer his artwork Slow Dance as an ongoing product. It is a simple, minimalist wooden frame incorporating stroboscopic LED lighting and a vibrating electromagnetic coil, which can animate a small item such as a feather or a flower in apparent slow motion.
