About Archiving Australian Media Arts

Archiving Australian Media Arts: Towards a method and a national collection (LP180100307) is a three year research project funded by the Australian Research Council involving collaboration between university researchers and cultural institutions.

Our aim is to develop a good practice method for stabilising digital media artworks, providing emulated access to the artworks to researchers in reading rooms, and to investigate the contemporary exhibition and re-display of historical media artworks. Research outcomes will include publications, an exhibition and an international conference.

The project is a collaboration between researchers at Swinburne, RMIT and Griffith universities, ACMI, the Art Gallery of NSW, the State Library of South Australia, Experimenta Media Arts, dLux Media Arts, ANAT, UNESCO PERSIST, and Rhizome. Chief Investigators are Melanie Swalwell (Centre for Transformative Media Technologies, Swinburne), Denise de Vries (Swinburne), Helen Stuckey (RMIT), Angela Goddard (Griffith), and Jonathan Parsons (Experimenta). Partner Investigators are Nick Richardson (ACMI), Carolyn Murphy (AGNSW), and Andrew Piper (SLSA).

Does anyone have a working copy of Scala? It is a "video titler and slideshow authoring system" for the #Amiga500. Neither of the 2 copies we've purchased work (the disks are bad). We actually just need ScalaPlayer, to render a m90s artwork for @ArchOzMediaArts #RetroComputing

The talk @CyndeMoya and I gave at #AMAGA2022 on #AusEaaSI "Preserving and Sharing Australian Media Art with Shared Emulation Infrastructure" is up, but I suspect it's only available to logged in delegates?? https://vimeo.com/725567429 #archivingmediaarts

Join us today @ 1:30pm for a live demo of #AusEaaSI, the Australian instance of Emulation as a Service Infrastructure. Learn how Aus GLAM orgs can share preserved software to make access to born digital easy.
