PhotoAlliance Lecture

George Legrady | Introductory Presentation by Bryant Austin

George Legrady will present a selection of his photographic-based works as they evolved from analog to digital, from the still-image to computational-generated interactive digital media installations. 

Legrady is currently a Distinguished Professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara and Director of the Experimental Visualization Lab in the Media Arts & Technology graduate program. He is also currently a researcher at the Institut des mines-telecom, Paristech, and professorial fellow in the iCinema Lab at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. He received an MFA in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1976.

His work has been featured internationally in gallery/museum exhibitions, print and electronic publications, and public commissions. His “Making Visible the Invisible” data visualization commissioned by the Seattle Public Library in 2005 continues to feature by the hour patrons’ checkouts on six large screens. 

His practice and research have been supported by the National Endowment of the Arts, Creative Capital Foundation, National Science Foundation, the Canada Council for the Arts, the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and others.
