One of the challenges of new media art has been its preservation: works are often dependent upon technology that moves from cutting-edge to obsolete. The Rhizome ArtBase aims to counter the evanescence of this digital underpinning, and since 1999 has preserved over 2,500 art works. As they state, "The mission of the ArtBase is to provide free, open, and permanent access to a living and historic collection of seminal new media art objects."
Explore the variety of projects preserved so far - searching the Timeline is particularly fascinating for "old" new media works.
