This workshop covers the basics of archiving artistic works. So much communication between artist and audience happens online through platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. Artists might create and distribute work through these services without considering the limitations and risks associated with relying on them to store their digital files.
This workshop will provide a brief overview of the main goals and considerations for artists in archiving content. We will talk about getting started with archiving your art, what specialized services are available, and how to design projects with archivability in mind. With a focus on digital publishing, we will go through a range of examples to empower artists to preserve their work.
