Open Call to participate in Maja Petric's  artwork AIEye On Redmond


Maja Petrić invites the Redmond community to participate in the creation of her final art piece during her Artist-In-Residence at the City of Redmond. Maja will be using artificial intelligence system (AIEye), developed in collaboration with computer scientist Mihai Jalobeanu, to create an image that expresses the essence of community's gaze at Redmond's natural environment.

To achieve an all-encompassing view that people have of nature in Redmond, Maja will need thousands of images that document the manifold of people's gaze at the natural landscapes of Redmond. For this Maja invites the Redmond community to participate in creation of the piece by contributing their own captures of Redmond's nature. 

The final piece AIEye on Redmond will be donated to the City of Redmond and permanently exhibited by the City.

Maja Petrić

Maja utilizes cutting-edge technology to create transformative spatial experiences. Growing up in Croatia during the violent fragmentation of Yugoslavia, she became preoccupied with using art to elevate a sense of the surroundings. She received a PhD from University of Washington and a Masters from New York University on transforming the poetic experience of space through the experimental use of technology. During her studies, Maja discovered that lighting is one of the most potent tools to shape people’s experience. 

An accomplished artist, her artwork has been exhibited at Microsoft Research Gallery, Hong Kong Landmark, Gallery 4Culture, Matadero Madrid, Medialab Prado, London’s Winter Lights, and more. More information about her work can be found here: www.majapetric.com.
