Hello Rhizomers, you are invited to...
New Media & Social Memory
Jan. 18, 2007
UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archivehttp://bampfa.berkeley.edu/ciao
The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is proud to
present New Media & Social Memory, a public symposium to discuss
strategies for preserving digital art at a time when digital
technologies are evolving and becoming obsolete at an astonishingly
rapid pace. While focussing on digital art, the symposium will also
address larger concerns about the long-term conservation of our
increasingly digital culture, including how we decide what digital
materials - from Web sites to video games - are worth saving. The full
day of presentations and panel discussions by leading experts in the
field of digital preservation, including Stewart Brand and Bruce Sterling,
will be held in the museum theater on Thursday, Jan. 18.
This symposium is open to the public free of charge; however, due to
limited space, online registration is required. See attached image for
program. For more information or to register, visithttp://bampfa.berkeley.edu/ciao
