Session Title:

  • Summit on New Media Art Archiving: Panels

Presentation Title:

  • Bridging Knowledge: Connecting New Media Art Archives




  • The Connecting New Media Art Archives project has been developing a methodology to enable the sharing of information between currently ‘siloed’ online repositories of New Media Art. With representatives from collections across the globe, this panel will examine the design and technical implementation decisions required to actualize connecting information in the archives.

    Creating connections between new media art archives involves technical, resource-availability and coordination challenges. To mitigate and adapt to such constraints, a clear articulation of the purpose(s) of connection can help to identify functional requirements and thus provide direction in technical choices. Accuracy, integrity and discoverability are our core principles. By creating an automatable methodology, the overarching goal to create a network of interconnected knowledge related to new media art is closer to realisation.
