Redmond’s artist-in-residence opens AIEye Art Gallery

New media artist Maja Petrić showcases AIEye series, including Lost Skies

Lights were shining through the glass windows as the public walked around viewing captivating light installations.

On Feb. 22, Redmond’s artist-in-residence Maja Petrc officially opened the doors to her new AIEye art gallery.

“It’s really special to share this space with [everyone],” Petric said to her attendees on Friday night. “[This] is an artist studio and also an opportunity to exhibit work, share it, and also engage with the community.”

Petric is a new media artist that works with immersive installations. To achieve her art installations, Petric partnered with artificial intelligence (AI) scientist Mihai Jalobeanu and together created AIEye. AIEye processes large numbers of images that document the manifold of people’s visions of nature and creates one image that represents all the collected images.

The exhibit showcased installation from Petric’s AlEye series, such as Lost Skies and Skies Epitomized of War and Peace.

In Lost Skies, Petric hopes to capture people’s perspective on climate change and engage their connection with nature. The computer-generated visualizations attempt to express the essence of people’s collective gaze at a sky affected by climate change. The results create artwork that captures varying human perspectives of a changing world.

In Skies Epitomized of War and Peace, Petric used the same AIEye algorithm to generate what the sky would look through the perspective of people gazing at it in the most peaceful and conflicted countries. The installation included the epitomes of the New Zealand sky, the Iraqi sky, the Syrian sky and the Icelandic sky.

As Redmond’s artist-in-residence, Petric wants to create a Redmond specific AlEye artwork that will debut as part of the So Bazaar event this summer. Petric is inviting residents to work alongside her to create a piece that represents the city of Redmond.

The AIEye art gallery is located at 16528 Cleveland St., Building D in Redmond. Drop-in hours are from 3-8 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays.
