Liat works in the field of technological interactive art. In her work she uses electronics, software and mechanics as her tools and materials. In her art she aims to make connections between worlds and disciplines that are not trivially connected. I connect the physical world with the virtual one, with digital data and media, technology, art and people. She builds machines that create art in interaction with their environment (robotic drummers, physical visualizations of sound, painting machines, etc.). When making art works, the machines are directed or inspired by their near environments or by virtual complex data.
Liat Segal (Israel, 1979), is a new media artist, fusing together art and technology. In her works Liat harnesses electronics, software, and mechanics to build installations and machines that connect the physical world with virtual ones. Liat comes from a technological background and today she uses technology as her materials and tools in her work. After years in the academy and in the high-tech world alongside with making projects 'to the drawer', two years ago Liat made her complete switch to art. Some of her recent works include a vast robotic drumming circle, various interactive painting and graffiti machines and an interactive beatbox bus station. Liat has graduated her M.Sc studies in computer science and biology and the Interdisciplinary Program for Fostering Excellence at Tel Aviv University, worked as a researcher at Microsoft Innovation Labs and taught at the Bezalel School of Arts and Design at the Hebrew University and at the Holon Institute of Technology's Interaction Lab.
