eccentric histories that explain our world through larger military, paranormal or corporate powers at play

The overarching theme of this year’s programme focuses on communicating across boundaries. This could include social or political boundaries, boundaries between the physical human world and digital technological life or communicating between the boundaries of our planet and beyond. Suzanne Treister’s work manages to address most of these forms of communication. She often engages in narratives that span across long time periods and reimagines eccentric histories that explain our world through larger military, paranormal or corporate powers at play. She is fascinated with the relationship between humans and new technologies, society, alternative belief systems and potential futures for humanity.

she uses all these methods to depict fictional worlds and international collaborative organisations

Treister studied at St Martin’s School of Art as well as Chelsea College of Art and Design and originally gained popular attention as a painter. She’s since lived in New York, Australia and Berlin becoming a pioneer of the digital / new media / web based field as her practice evolved. Since then her work has utilised various media including: video, the internet, interactive tech, photography, drawing and watercolour. Now London based, she uses all these methods to depict fictional worlds and international collaborative organisations as well as exploring man-made thought structures, real and fictional.
