Rhizome’s digital preservation program supports ongoing access to born-digital culture.

In addition to conserving individual artworks and other cultural artifacts, the Rhizome preservation team develops infrastructure, researches and pilots new preservation methods, and engages with open-source software projects. The program was initiated in response to the needs of the ArtBase, Rhizome’s archive of born-digital artworks. Today, it aims to develop approaches to born-digital art conservation in support of the field as a whole.
