Abstract:

  • Panel: New Media Archives- New Intelligent Ambiances

    The paper “Sus­tain­able preser­va­tion prac­tices and the Rhi­zome Art­Base” is a case study pre­pared to de­tail the re­cent over­haul of the Rhi­zome Art­Base.  Founded in 1999, the Rhi­zome Art­Base is an on­line archive of new media art con­tain­ing around 2508 art works, and grow­ing. The Art­Base en­com­passes a vast range of pro­jects by artists from all over the world that em­ploy ma­te­ri­als such as soft­ware, codes, web­sites, mov­ing im­ages, games and browsers to aes­thet­ics and crit­i­cal ends. The paper is an overview of the chal­lenges, de­ci­sions, and tech­nolo­gies be­hind the new Rhi­zome Archive, as well as a roadmap for its fu­ture.
