The exhibition will present three projects from George Legrady’s recent body of work.

Algorithmic Visualizations
2002-present
Animation Projection and Digital prints, 32 x 42″ each

“Algorithmic Visualizations” consists of images created directly from mathematical equations that have their origins in image processing algorithms.

Making Visible the Invisible
2005

A 2 screen display of a commission for the Rem Koolhaas designed Seattle Public Library, featuring visualizations that are based on statistical analyses of the circulation of non-fiction books catalogued according to the Dewey decimal system going in and out of the library’s collection.

Kinetic Flow
2006
Vermont/Santa Monica Station, Los Angeles MetroRail

Preview of a visualization for a leaning 18′ x 24′ concrete wall above a staircase and escalator unit at the entrance of the station. The design concept for the image has been to engage the kinetic experience of the downward movement on both escalator and staircase, one smooth, the other sequential. The algorithmically generated abstract visual rendition uses statistical data sampled from LA metro traffic circulation to seed the image generating equation.
