Based on the experience of growing up in two political systems during the times of the cold war and paradoxic shifting norms within their societies, Ajtay is interested in the psychological aspects of contemporary culture and how changes caused by forces outside our control, man made or natural, influence our social structures, single and/or collective emotional states and the human soul. Another major topic of Ajtay is migration that is often explored through works involving language. Though rooted in the photographic medium, Ajtay expresses above topics in a variety of forms, including video, sound, installation and drawing.
