MadArt Studio shines the light on: Light

By Kelsie Leggett - Staff Reporter



In Seattle, there is a new exhibit showing a modern take on art, an immersive light and auditory experience.

Maja Petric, the artist, is known for her talents in technology and lighting and has taken these skills to form a new way to express her poetry and art.

The installation is currently at MadArt Studio, where it will stay until Dec 1.

The ever-changing lights flow with guest's movements, creating dazzling patterns and pictures with them. The visuals are meant to convey a feeling of interconnectedness, and to show how we are all connected, according to Petric.

Petric has a PhD in Digital Arts and Experimental Media from the University of Washington and a master's in Interactive Telecommunications from New York University.

She focuses on the experimental use or light and sound in most of her art.

The installation is meant to imitate stars and their constellations, according to Petric.
The delicate way the lights flow coinciding with ethereal music that plays translates a sort of mystical feeling.

"As an artist, my goal is to elicit transformative sensory, cognitive and visceral experiences," said Petric.

The installation is set in low lighting so that the only sensory input guests have are the ones chosen by Petric.

The music that wafts through the installation is composed by James Wen- lock, a composer and software designer.

The lights color spectrum and movement have been compared to the aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights.

Petric made this with the hopes that it will remind people of our interconnectedness, with each other, time, beau- ty and the universe.

The exhibit is at the MadArt Studio in Seattle. Admission is free, and doors are open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday from noon until 5 p.m., and on Thursday and Friday from noon until 7 p.m. More information at https:// madartseattle.com/exhibits/we-are-all- made-of-light/
