'Second Summit on New Media Art Archiving'
Short paper – Restoring the Recent Past: Learnings from producing a retrospective of VR content from the UK
- Abstract: The Immersive Arcade was a retrospective of UK-based immersive content, showcased during 2021. The project was not set up to archive the content, but to restore it for new audiences. The production team made several observations about the lifecycle of immersive content and what types of considerations regarding the identity of a piece of content emerge in a restoration process. They are documented in this short paper with the aim to inform work on future retrospectives and similar archiving and restoration projects.
- Biography: Aki Järvinen, PhD, is an immersive researcher and designer with 20 years of experience with interactive media. He works at Digital Catapult in London helping UK companies adopt immersive technologies into their business.
