Artist in Residence - Past Work

Lost Skies

Maja Petric I May 12, 2018

There is only one sky, but the ways we see and interpret it are infinite.

Lost Skies, an exhibition by Redmond Artist in Residence Maja Petric, opens May 1 at the Redmond Community Center at Marymoor Village (RCCMV). In this series, Maja uses machine learning to generate visualizations that attempt to express the essence of our collective gaze at a sky affected by climate change. In order to achieve this all-encompassing perspective, she utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) as an artistic tool (AIAT) to combine numerous points of view into individual archetypal images.

Maja will also present a lecture about her work and residency in Redmond in the Redmond Community Center at Marymoor Village (RCCMV) Auditorium on Saturday, May 12 at 10 am, with a CommuniTea to follow hosted by the Redmond Arts and Culture Commission. All are welcome.

I Saw My Birth, Love, & Death in the Sky

Maja Petric | December 2, 2017

For this site-specific light art installation in the Heron Rookery during Redmond Lights, visitors will be guided into a clearing Redmond's urban forest where they can look up at the sky and be immersed in the constellation of projected stars. The number of stars equals the population size in the US. Whenever a baby is born somewhere in the US, a star appears in the sky. Whenever a person dies, a star disappears in an audiovisual depiction of a supernova explosion.
