About Me

Web person at the Imperial War Museum, just completed PhD about digital sustainability in museums (the original motivation for this blog was as my research diary). Posting occasionally, and usually museum tech stuff but prone to stray. I welcome comments if you want to take anything further. These are my opinions and should not be attributed to my employer or anyone else (unless they thought of them too). Twitter: @jottevanger

Archiving the Avant-Garde

Archiving the Avant-Garde This project looks like it has a lot of overlap with mine, technically and in the sense of theorising the assets and evaluating their worth. It's not only about digital art but that is one significant strand. A notation system (A System of Formal Notation for Scoring Works of Digital and Variable Media Art (PDF)) and a related book (Permanence Through Change: The Variable Media Approach) look interesting, as does this article by one of the contributors: The Straw that Broke the Museum's Back: Documenting and Preserving Digital Art for the Next Century (Richard Rinehart, 2000)
