Born in 1965 in Budapest. In 1994 he graduated from the Faculty of Painting and Faculty of the Intermedia at the University of Fine Arts in Budapest. He also studied at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam. He creates installations which combine photography, sculpture and drawing, inspired by topics from the area of mathematics and physics. In his continuing investigation of the mechanisms of perception, he analyses the relationships between plane, time and space, making use of the attainments of such disciplines as kinetics, optics and geometry. The results of his experiments are often surprising, amusing and even poetic. He participated in numerous individual and collective exhibitions, e.g. dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel (2012), the 16th Biennale of Sydney (2008) and the 8th Istanbul Biennale (2003). He represented Hungary at the 48th Biennale in Venice (the Hungarian Pavilion) in 1999. Laureate of the Nam June Paik Award (2008). His works are exhibited in many international collections, e.g. at Centre Pompidou, MUDAM in Luxemburg and Ludwig Múzeum in Budapest. He cooperates with Galerija Gregor Podnar in Berlin.
