Archiving the Digital 2011

Case studies on online archiving initiatives Runme.org, Turbulence.org and AktiveArchive.

I‚Äčn this Virtueel Platform Research, Virtueel Platform takes the online software art repository Runme.org, the internet based-art commissioning and exhibition platform Turbulence.org, and the electronic art preservation research project AktiveArchive as cases for exploring the different ways organisations deal with the preservation of software and internet-based artworks.

The main question we raised was: how does the structure of an arts organisation relate to the issues it faces, and the possible strategies and solutions it uses when attempting to deal with the preservation and archiving of software and internet-based art?
