Justin Blinder is a Brooklyn-based media artist, programmer, and designer. His work examines how our claims of ownership, criteria for an object’s value, and tools for social interaction have changed in the digital landscape. Justin’s project Dumpster Drive, a file-sharing application that recycles digital files, helped to build a networked community of users around the ubiquitous, but understudied, digital process of deleting.
Justin's work has been featured on media outlets such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Atlantic, the BBC, Gizmodo, and GOOD. In the past, he has worked as a technical director for projects exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, the New York Hall of Science, and the Whitney Museum’s Artport. He holds a BFA in Design & Technology from Parsons the New School for Design.
