Suzanne Treister

Suzanne Treister (b. 1958, London) was a pioneer of digital and web-based art in the early 1990s, developing fictional worlds and international collaborative organisations. Her projects often comprise fantastic reinterpretations of given taxonomies and histories that examine the existence of covert, unseen forces at work in the world, whether corporate, military or paranormal.
