  • About Suzanne Treister


    Suzanne Treister has developed her earlier interest in paintings relating to video games into the actual use of computer images. She wrote in 1989, "I have wanted to speak, through the manipulation of objects and images, of possible structures; structures suggested by ground plans, children's puzzles, maps, computer games etc ... used in a metaphorical way to suggest patterns of thought and emotional states; in such a way that meaning is suspended, but at the same time allowed out to play."
