Kristine Ploug holds an MA in Danish Language and Literature from University of Copenhagen. During her time as a visiting scholar at New York University, she spent more time in Chelsea’s galleries than at campus eventually stumbling upon Jeremy Blake’s Angel Dust at Feigen Contemporary. This first encounter with digital art started an avalanche of related activities. She focused her thesis on net.art and in 2002 she founded the Danish ezine kopenhagen.dk’s mini portal for net art kopenhagen.dk/net.art. In 2003 she - together with Thomas Petersen - started artificial.dk, which is a much larger continuation of the kopenhagen net art site and has a broader focus.
