The artist collective /rive focuses on site-specific, locative projects that meet at the intersection of psychogeography, locative media and documentary narrative. Most projects are set in, and explore, urban public spaces. Inspired by social-practice, our process is collaborative and participatory, blurring the boundaries between maker, subject and audience.
/rive was founded by Samara Smith and A.E. Souzis, and features a rotating number of artists who collaborate on projects relating to their own practice, conceptual themes and inspirations. Recent collaborators include Laura Grace Chipley (Aquapolis 2100), Andrew Demirjian (A Year of Collectives), Karen Oh (COMMotion) and Annie Berman (Anamorphosis).
