George Legrady directs the Experimental Visualization Lab in the Media Arts & Technology graduate program at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His research and teaching are currently focused on data visualization funded by the Robert W Deutsch Foundation, swarm robotic multi-camera research funded by a National Science Foundation IIS award, and visual ethnography also funded by the National Science Foundation. His artwork in interactive, digital media explores the intersections between culture, narrative and emerging technologies with installations presented internationally in Asia, Europe and North America. His commission for the Seattle Public Library is one of the longest running dynamic data visualization artworks to collect and visualize data since 2005. "We Are Stardust" realized in collaborative with the NASA Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology was exhibited at the Art Center College of Design (2008), the Vancouver Winter Olympics (2010), and the ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany (2015).
