Ziv (ZEEVE) Schneider is an Israel-born, New York-based multimedia artist who synthesizes various design practices to explore how new technologies enrich narratives with spatialization and interaction. Her work resides at the intersection of documentary, video games and volumetric photography. Since creating The Museum of Stolen Art in 2014, Schneider has been working primarily in virtual reality, including a project for The Economist’s first VR experience titled RecoVR:Mosul—a virtual tour of the reconstructed Mosul Museum in Iraq. She received her master’s degree in 2015 from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, where she worked as a research fellow and recently taught her first course on interactive non-fiction. Schneider is currently developing an ongoing printed portrait series titled Capsules, alongside other VR and AR experimentations.
