A.E. Souzis is a New York City-based writer and interdisciplinary artist. Through her writings and site-specific projects, she uses storytelling and technology to uncover or reimagine public space, alternative or underground histories and real-life networks of power. Her essays and fiction have been featured in publications including Urban Omnibus, Underwater New York and the book anthology Traveler’s Tales: Prague, and her walking tours and installations have been exhibited at Queens Museum, Transit Museum and Art in Odd Places festival, among other venues. She is also a member of /rive, an artist collective focusing on site-specific, locative projects that meet at the intersection of psychogeography, locative media and documentary narrative.
During her time at the 2019 WoW/UNY project space, she will be developing an experimental climate change fiction walking tour of Governors’ Island. The tour, inspired by participants’ feedback from her 2018 WoW/UNY residency with /rive collective, will feature stories and drawings that explore future (watery) incarnations of New York City.
