As part of our new summer US project States of Independence we've invited our favourite 30 American curators, magazines, creatives and institutions to takeover Dazed for a day. 

Today, it's the turn of Tumblr, the platform that has turned self-publishing into an art form. For their exclusive guest-edit, we’ll be exploring the Tumblr aesthetic in its many forms – from the dA-Zed of Tumblr art, to pop quizzes with our favourite Tumblr publishers and spotlights on some of the best net artists blending IRL and URL(s) in radical new ways.

I'm Google takes image-searching to the next level. Stretches of laffy-taffy segue into beltdrivers, which then segue into haybale covering, into pumpkins, into crochet, into Play-Doh, into balloons, gloves, bags, vapor trails, gyms, tents. It's a Chinese whispers of the world of pictures, a library of babel catagorised by colour, flooding the screen, and joining the world. 

Baltimore's Dina Kelberman, the artist behind the all-things-are-linked-when-you-think-about-it Tumblr, has exhibited across the world, and took a few minutes out to answer our pop quiz. We submitted the soon-to-be-famous set of questions to the artist, and within the hour, she sent back 30 snowman that tell the story of the State of the Union.
