Materializing the Ephemeral
On the problems of the preservation and re-staging of media art installations
The imai foundation (inter media art institute) finished, with the support of the Gerda Henkel foundation , the research project "Materializing the Ephemeral" (2007-2009). The aim was to develop guidelines for the preservation and presentation of different media art installations. A series of case studies carried out by imai since 2006 served as an empirical basis for the research.
