George Legrady's work of the past twenty years reveals an engagement with a series of complex cultural questions concerned with the intricacies of information processing as mediated through camera vision and computer technologies. His studies in fine arts photography, Art Theory and Visual Anthropology set the direction for his digital based interactive projections in installations that address narrative, memory, information systems, the archive, algorithmic data processing, and audience participation through the motion tracking of their presence and movement. Legrady's visually based digital media artworks began in the mid 1980's through the scripting of image processing algorithmic based software as artistic actions transforming photographic digitized images. His interactive cd-rom catalog "George Legrady: From Analogue to Digital" published in 1998 for the occasion of a two museum retrospective traces methodologies and approaches in his earlier analog practice that are critical components of his current work in interactive media today.
