 George Legrady: From analog to digital: photography & interactive media

In 1997, the National Gallery of Canada presented a solo exhibition on the works of George Legrady, spanning twenty years of photographic production and projects that featured computers and interactivity from the 1980s onward. To mark the exhibition, rather than publish a printed catalogue, the Gallery collaborated with the artist to produce a catalogue on CD-ROM. The Daniel Langlois Foundation, with permission from Legrady, has adapted the CD-ROM for the Internet through the meticulous work of its Webmaster, Ludovic Carpentier, and we are very pleased to present the finished product.

Originally published under the title of George Legrady: From analog to digital: photography & interactive media = de l'analogie au codage numérique : la photographie et l'interactivité (CD-ROM). Ottawa: National Gallery of Canada, 1997. - ISBN 0888846797.

 Documentary File on The Visitor: Living by Numbers by Luc Courchesne

The Visitor draws on Courchesne's research in image projection, which led to the creation of the Panoscope 360°, a device that allows a 360° panoramic image to be projected using a single video channel. From the beginning of his career, the artist has used the possibilities of socialization offered by new technologies to intensify the presence of his work and the experience of its "visitors."
