Authors: Terry C. W. Wong


The Second Summit on New Media Art Achieving at ISEA2022 is a worldwide collaboration between leading new media art archives, making the Summit an ideal case study for the emerging global archiving network. This invited talk will mainly discuss the approach and goals of this case study.

Theme: archive, new media art, digital culture heritage, global archiving network

  • Abstract: One of the primary functions of an archive is to act as a repository to store essential documents and records throughout history; consequently, these stored archival materials can help us re-imagine a collective memory of the past. With rapid changes in the dissemination of information in recent years, the conventional ways of archiving may not be able to capture all the essential records of our time. This is especially concerning in regard to new media art archiving. Many recently created important new media artworks have been disappearing without being archived. If this issue is not addressed, we may lose a significant part of our digital cultural heritage. To respond to the issue, archives worldwide have attempted to approach the problem collectively. This lightning talk discusses a case study that will be conducted in response to the Second Summit on New Media Art Archiving.
