It’s easy to feel increasingly disconnected from politics, from the country, from our neighbors, from even ourselves. In response, Seattle-based artist Maja Petrić is using her new immersive exhibit, We Are All Made of Light, to look at the ways that humans can plug back into our OG bio-cosmic fabric. Using a heady combination of interactive light, spatial sound, and artificial intelligence developed by Mihai Jalobeanu, Petrić’s installation creates audiovisual trails of each visitor as they move through the space. As the installation goes on, previous visitors’ trails will mix together as part of the constellation of light that new visitors will encounter, connecting everyone with the past, present, and future. “The immersive experience emulates a constellation in which every person becomes one among the stars,” Petrić explained. Trippy shit.
