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).

Today is UNESCO’s World Day for Audiovisual Heritage. I was part of a fascinating discussion with @lcurham01 @astisherring @lucasihlein for a @SISCSU radio episode on our various A/V archiving projects.
