I am a Grad student studying Library and Info Science. I am currently researching the topic of preserving net.art and I'd like to get a few artists to weigh in on the topic. Very broadly, I'd like to know if any artists are thinking about preservation issues when creating work, if keeping the work for perpetuity is a concern, if anyone has consciously chosen to let an artwork die (and why you've made that decision? ) and any other suggestions/concerns you can offer on the topic. For full disclosure, I would be interested in referencing some of the responses in a term paper and presentation.
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
