George Legrady to Craft 'Aesthetic Metavision' Art Experience
...
George Legrady, chair of UCSB's Media Arts and Technology (MAT) doctoral program, has recently been named a Guggenheim Fellow. Out of the 3,000 applicants considered for disciplines like natural sciences, visual arts, cinema, and musical composition, Legrady was one of 178 to receive this year's fellowships. To be considered, one must first produce advanced creative material in the arts, as well as show exceptional promise for a creative scholarship.

Born in Budapest, Hungary, Legrady grew up in Montreal, Canada until he moved to California to pursue a master of fine arts degree in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute.
Although Legrady began in the field of fine arts photography, he transitioned to digital technologies in the mid-1980s. Now he's considered a new-media pioneer. His work focuses on photographic-based media, interactive digital media installations, and computationally generated visualizations. The integration of digital processes in his work has expanded his horizon and allowed him to investigate methodologies for new forms of visualization. His pieces are often products of self-organizing systems combined with algorithmically generated visualizations intended to serve as sociocultural narratives.
Projects including "An Anecdoted Archive from the Cold War" (1993), "Slippery Traces" (1995), "Making the Visible Invisible" (2005), and "We are Stardust" (2008) are some of Legrady's prizewinning pieces. His exhibitions and installations have been featured in the Centre Pompidou, the Whitney Museum of Art, LACMA, and in international museums including the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal and the Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei.
Receiving the fellowship will allow Legrady to continue working on his new piece, "Aesthetic Metavision," which is an extension of his piece, "Swarm Vision. Legrady explains, "This proposed project is to be a state-of-the-art installation, a self-contained, dynamic visual ecosystem consisting of multiple robotic cameras that continuously scan the space they inhabit in search of interesting subject matter. The viewer will be completely surrounded by screen projections that act as part of a virtual reality scene.
His goals, Legrady says, "are to introduce and engage the public in experiencing how such an autonomously driven artwork functions.

George Legrady is Chair of the arts-engineering Media Arts & Technology PhD program at the University of California, Santa Barbara, director of the Experimental Visualization Lab, and professor of digital media in the College of Engineering and the College of Humanities and Fine Arts. He is an internationally published scholar and exhibiting media artist, a pioneer in the field of interactive digital media arts. His contribution to the field since the early 1990's has been in creating digital media interactive installations based on a set of conceptual positions for intersecting cultural content with data processing. His current research engages with data visualization, robotic computational integrated photography, and digital visual ethnography. His computational based installations have been exhibited internationally in multiple venues from fine arts museums and galleries, alternative spaces, academic conferences, and public commissions. He has received awards from Creative Capital Foundation; the Daniel Langlois Foundation for the Arts, Science and Technology; the Canada Council; the National Endowment for the Arts, and the National Science Foundation.

The talk will give an overview of George Legrady's artistic practice begun in photography, and transitioning to computer-based works in the mid-1980s. He was part of the first generation of artists in the 1980's to integrate digital computer technologies with photography, conceptual art, and art theory, producing pioneering prizewinning projects such as the "Anecdoted Archive from the Cold War" (1993), "Slippery Traces" (1995), "Sensing Speaking Space" (2002), and the internationally traveling "Pockets Full of Memories"(2001-2007) which has been exhibited in seven countries. His contribution to the digital media field since the early stages of its formation into a discipline in the early 1990's has been in intersecting cultural content with data processing as a means of creating new forms of aesthetic representations and socio-cultural narrative experiences. Current projects at this time integrate algorithmic processes as a means to data visualization through semantic categorization and self-organizing systems, interactive art installations, and mixed realities collaborative narrative development.

The exhibition "Voice of Sisyphus" by George Legrady will be present in Chronus Art Center from 21st June to 19th July. Voice of Sisyphus|Sliceis composed of two works - "Voice of Sisyphus" and "Slice"that both integrate algorithmic processes as a means to data visualization and sonification by which new forms of aesthetic representations and socio-cultural narrative experiences are created. While the translation of sampled data from an image to sound in "Voice of Sisyphus" proposes and questions the potentiality of an aesthetic equivalence from one medium to another through simulated synaesthetic modeling, the transitional movement from a state of legibility of the photograph to an abstract and photographically unrecognizable state in "Slice" investigates into our perceptual experience of an image and examines the ways through which culturally identifiable meaning is constructed and could be deconstructed. he repetitive and cycling feature of both works easily bring to mind the Greekmyth of king Sisyphus' dilemma who was compelled to ceaselessly roll an immense boulder up a hill, only to watch it roll back down repeatedly, whereas their experimental nature with fluctuating parameter values provides variations within the constraints of their settings to allow for aesthetic breadth and constant fluidity of perceptual and aesthetic experience within the epic-cycle.
