His name is synonymous with kinetic and interactive artworks, site specific, public art installations, objects, photography and videos, that can be intuitively internalised, in which spiritual content is the foreground.  His visual language is mainly inspired by the technical media, scientific discoveries, high tech, low tech, objects from the history of technological evolution and the phenomena of nature. All Csongor G. Szigeti’s works push the limits of the genre, in their intersection they explore and dissect the relationships of our world and are generally characterised by deep profoundness.

Conference Topic

Arts and humanities in their development support each other and have relevance to other scientific aspects. The more advanced human civilization, the more complex the problems encountered. This requires a complementary study of all scientific aspects. Interdisciplinary arts and humanities in the millennium era developed into something new.
