The artistic research of Magda Wegrzyn addresses questions of perception and communication in tune with aesthetics, digital technologies and the medium of painting. Speaking of painting - from the context of digital technology - she calls upon a tangible contact during the process of interaction with it. She examines how digital culture affects the perception of a medium in case of being both: a painter and a receiver. Her interest considers how virtual reality of a screen affects virtual reality of painting. She reflects on the idea of a taste of 'digital look' and a manifestation of beauty in this medium. Magdas current interests reflect upon articulation in painting, in tune with visual rhetoric - understand us communication of visual image as contrary to verbal messages as well as the function of the image and its impact on the public. She is interested in Claude Shannon and Warren Weaver: The Mathematical Theory of Communication and its possible use in art with a special emphasis on Recent Contributions to The Mathematical Theory of Communication by Warren Weaver.
