Diane Ludin is an artist and writer who has used the Internet as a material resource since 1996. She recycles existing Internet news media to collage a series of automated records of contemporary communication. Her collages focus on framing the Virtual Body as an “almost reality” and the core of “embodiment.” Ludin has exhibited both her solo and collaborative works in the US and abroad. Commissioned works include Internet projects for The Walker Art Center, Franklin Furnace, Turbulence.org and The Alternative Museum. Collaborative performances and broadcasts with The Electronic Disturbance Theater, FAKESHOP, Las Fantasmas, Prema Murthy, Francesca DiRimini, Ricardo Dominguez, and Agnese Trocchi.
