He was born in 1969 in Budapest, Hungary where he lives and works today. Graduated from the
Hungarian University of Fine Arts first from the Painting (1992), later from the Intermedia
Department (1994). Currently he works as the director of the Doctoral School of the Hungarian
University of Fine Arts and as a professor of the Intermedia Department. His artistic approach
can be characterized by experimentalism closely related to technical media. Szegedy-Maszák uses
a broad spectrum of mediums in his artworks, from traditional chemical based photographical
processes through painting and printmaking to interactive virtual- and augmented reality
installations. Albeit his artistic approach is strongly based on media (an)archeology and the
creative applications of contemporary digital technology, his art became internationally known
by his immersive installations from the 1990-s, where the meaningful usage of special interfaces
and digital technology made explorable the computer generated illusions. His artworks combine
cutting edge tools with anachronistic processes both in terms of technology and meaning;
intentionally confronting the viewer with the (historical) determination of our world picture
by our depicting technologies.
