Magda Csutak's artistic production and series of works are constructed interactively. In the process, constitutive factors remain the sensuous desire to try to experiment, and the translation of mathematics into language via the path of visual art. Her work is frequently visionary, ahead of the actual scientific proof of theories. As early as 2002, for example, she created a 15-part pictorial formula that delineates her cosmos. In 2006 and 2007 she attended the lectures of the mathematician Rudolf Taschner in Vienna. There she discovered, in the lectures relating to Euler, the "most beautiful of all mathematical formulas". This is a metaphor that not only Taschner draws on, but one which also touches on a central nerve in Magda Csutak's work. She constructs her artistic binary system in which elements convene which otherwise remain separate.
