Baltimorean Dina Kelberman’s Addictive Art Blog Earns Celebrity Praise

Back in 2011, Dina Kelberman — whom you may know from her short plays and comics —  started the art-project blog “I’m Google,” in which the artist arranges pictures found on the Internet into a steadily transforming stream of images. What makes the blog truly stunning is the sense one gets that the chain of pictures is not guided by a sophisticated algorithm, but by a human intelligence. Adjacent pictures share not only abstract visual elements, but often thematic ones as well. The forest lake becomes a desert lake becomes a lunar crater becomes a child sitting in a hand-dug hole at the beach and so on.

Just a few days ago “I’m Google” caught the attention of New York magazine’s senior art critic Jerry Saltz. Then it got an enthusiastic write-up at This Is Colossal, and several other blogs followed suit. Yesterday, novelist Ben Marcus (come on, the guy who wrote The Flame Alphabet!) facebooked about it, and American Idol host Ryan Seacrest tweeted praise for it.

Dina says her Tumblr followership has more than tripled since the hoopla, but she joked that she expects to lose a sizable portion of them the next time she posts a batch of images as they tend to clog people’s feeds.
