Working in a variety of different media including drawing, painting, animation, installation, sculpture, film, video and sound, Magdy engages elements of humor, irony, and absurdity to alter and expand preconceived notions and entrenched cultural views. He is particularly interested in creating narrative structures that explore the space between reality and fiction and its influence on science, history, global culture and the dissemination of knowledge.
