George Legrady's talk at LDM
"The lecture will trace the intersection of data organization and visualization in a number of the artist's projects such as "Pockets Full of Memories" (Souvenirs plein les poches) inaugurated at the Centre Pompidou, and "Making Visible the Invisible" a public arts commission for the Seattle Central Library, and the Global Collaborative Visual Mapping Archive (GCVMA) cellphone visual archive exhibited this summer at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC. These projects consist of visualizations generated by custom designed software that dynamically organize data."
