Join conservators, artists, computer scientists, curators, art
historians, registrars, and archivists to explore challenges and
emerging practices in the collection and preservation of software-based
art. Twelve lectures and four panels will focus on the history of
software–based art and its underlying technology; case studies from
major art collections; methods of artwork analysis, description and
documentation; and strategies for preservation, display and long-term
accessibility. Four guided practical exercises, conducted by
participants on their own laptops, will introduce the audience to the
concepts of coding and basic preservation tools, such as version
control, disk imaging, and emulation. See full program and register on
