Lightning Talk – Participatory Preservation: Experiments in Distributed Networks of Care
- Abstract: The recent emergence of decentralized economies has foregrounded an urgent need for new modes of long-view care and stewardship in contemporary Time-based Media Art. This lightning talk presents some learnings and insights from 10 years of hands-on applied research in the gallery and museum context. Case studies are structured around design thinking methodologies, and outcomes from experiments ranging from new exhibition formats, to collecting models, decentralized storage experiments and more.
