About the work

This is a work from my current project, Technoshamanic Systems – New Cosmological Models for Survival which presents microcosmic, non-colonialist plans towards a techno-spiritual imaginary of alternative visions of survival on earth and inhabitation of the cosmos.

About the artist:

Born 1958 London, Suzanne Treister lives and works between London and the French Pyrenees. Graduated from Brighton Polytechnic (1978); St Martins School of Art (1981); and Chelsea School of Art (1982).

Treister was a pioneer in the new media field from the early 1990s, making work about emerging technologies, developing avatars and fictional worlds. Her recent projects include HEXEN 2.0, HFT The Gardener, SURVIVOR (F) and The Escapist Black Hole Spacetime. An ongoing focus of her work is the relationship between new technologies, society, alternative belief systems and the potential futures of humanity.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
