( Contact ) Who Dina Kelberman is a multimedia artist whose work comes out of a tendency to fastidiously collect and organize imagery from the surroundings of everyday life -- Google, YouTube, television, social media. Her practice utilizes the recontextualisation of found media to create monuments to the human need to connect, create, and destroy. Her uncannily meticulous work has been referred to as a 'reverse Turing-test' and an 'elevation of the ugly and boring to beautiful.' Kelberman's work transcends the typical aesthetics of net-art while remaining rooted in the world wide web. She has created web-based pieces for the New Museum and Marina Abramovic Institute and exhibits internationally. Her work has been written about by The New York Times, Art21, NPR, art theory books and textbooks. She is currently ranked 9th in the world for Most Lines in Tetris for the NES.
