“New Data: Curating and Archiving Digital Art in New Zealand”
From The Aotearoa Digital Arts Reader, ed. Brennan and Ballard, 2008.
Lisa Mitchell discusses why we need to think beyond assumptions underlying the practice of cultural preservation in order to document and care for digital art. To “outwit oblivion and obsolescence”, according to Mitchell, gallery professionals and artists must re-examine how they participate in the care, storage, interpretation and display of artworks.
