George Legrady is an interdisciplinary media artist and scholar whose work has focused on the analysis and visualising of cultural data. At the University of California, Santa Barbara, he directs the Experimental Visualization Lab in the Media Arts & Technology arts-engineering doctoral program. During the fall of 2017, he is in Paris on a John Simon Guggenheim Visual Art fellowship. He is a visiting researcher at IMT (Institut Mines-Telecom) working with the Diaspora Lab  on the visualising of internet searches by the general public at the BPI Pompidou library.

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.
