- The Media Art Notation System: Documenting and Preserving Digital/Media Art
This paper by Richard Rinehart proposes a new approach to conceptualizing digital and media art forms. This theoretical approach will be explored through issues raised in the process of creating a formal declarative model (alternately known as a metadata framework, notation system or ontology) for digital and media art.
- Preservation of Dynamic and Interactive Content by use of Binary Translation and Virtualisation
This Planets report by Leo Konstantelos presents a study that moves beyond migration and emulations, by exploring the possibilities of binary translation and virtualisation to preserve dynamic and interactive content.
- Collaborations in Conserving Time-Based Art
This report presents a summary of discussion group sessions of a Colloquium co-organized by the Lunder Conservation Center of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
- MeLa: European Museums and Libraries in/of the Age of Migrations
MeLa is a four-year research project funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme, which aims to delineate new approaches for museums and libraries in a context characterized by the continuous migration of people and ideas. Its main objectives are to advance knowledge in the field and to support museum and library communities, practitioners, experts and policymakers in developing new missions and forms of museums and libraries “in the age of migration”.
- CAiRO: Curating Artistic Research Output
The CAiRO (Curating Artistic Research Output) project has come to its close and has released its outcomes. CAiRO has created a post-graduate teaching module aimed at meeting the needs of the creative arts researcher. Content includes guidance on issues identified as important by arts researchers themselves, including: copyright, ethics, metadata, file formats, sharing data, meeting funders expectations and facilitating research assessment.
- Managing performance data and documentation
Training material from a seminar that took place on Thursday 17th February 2011, as part of the JISC Incremental project. The event brought together researchers and performers working in the live and performing arts across the UK, to inspire and provide guidance for better management of their research data.
- Data Management Skills Support Initiative (DaMSSI)
The JISC/RIN-funded Data Management Skills Support Initiative (DaMSSI), in collaboration with DCC, has now completed its work. DaMSSI produced a series of five career profiles that aim to demonstrate how data management skills contribute to and underpin high-quality performance in a number of professions. Of particular interest here is the Conservator career profile.
