Prof. George Legrady had kindly organized my visit at UC Santa Barbara. Our joint project Pockets Full of Memories, originally exhibited in 2001 in Paris, has visited of locations during the past years, also in Helsinki.
George has a number of interesting projects. Towards the very end of my visit, he described one of the latest projects called Making Visible the Invisible. It is a commission for the Seattle Central Library. The installation consists of LCD screens located on behind the librarians’ main information desk. The screens feature real-time calculated animation visualizations generated by custom designed software that conducts varies kinds of statistical analysis.
