New Media & Social Memory Symposium

On January 18, 2007, the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive presented New Media & Social Memory, a public symposium to discuss strategies for preserving digital art at at time when digital technologies are evolving and becoming obsolete at an astonishingly rapid pace. While focusing on digital art, the symposium also addressed larger concerns about the long-term conservation of our increasingly digital culture, including how we decide what digital content--from websites to video games--are worth saving. The full day included presentations and panel discussions by leading experts in the field of digital preservation. The entire symposium was videotaped and is presented below for your viewing.
