George Legrady holds a joint appointment in the Department of Art and the Media Arts & Technology graduate program where he is director of the  Experimental Visualization Lab. His research and teaching are currently focused on data visualization funded by a Robet W Deutsch Foundation fellowship, and a robotic actuated multi-camera system funded by a National Science Foundation grant. His artwork in interactive, digital media explores the intersections between culture, narrative and emerging technologies with installations featured internationally in Asia, Europe and North America at places such as the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2001); Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki (2005); the International Center for Photography, New York (1994), Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei (2007) and other places. Legrady had a retrospective of his analog to digital artworks at the National Gallery of Canada, and the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography in 1997. His commission for the Seattle Public Library is one of the few digital artworks to collect and parse data since 2005. "We Are Stardust" realized in collaborative with the NASA Spitzer Science Center at Caltech was featured at the Art Center College of Design (2008) and the Vancouver Winter Olympics in winter 2010.
