Emulation test case as part of the Variable Media Network
Jeff Rothenberg will work to set up a test case for the preservation of artworks that use digital technology. He will also develop strategies for conducting such a test. As part of this research, he will define parameters for selecting the artwork while keeping in mind the desired outcome, which is to better anticipate the problems of preserving digital works.
