Off the back of some recent thoughts regarding the archiving of websites, SB sent me a link to “Digital Preservation in the Artist’s Studio” by Ben Fino-Radin. The article provides an extremely thorough overview of what steps might be involved in digitally archiving studio output, along with a few real-world examples. Love this stuff.
Quite like this person’s archive of patches from armed forces around the world that are based on beer labels. There must be so many out there.
The Mac Photographic Archive was started by GSA graduate Lizzie Malcolm and Daniel Powers following the fire that consumed much of the Macintosh Building at the Glasgow School of Art. Anyone who has ever visited the building can upload photos in an effort to digitally preserve the history of the iconic building. The archive is growing, but they’re still lacking photos of some areas (particularly the studios). If you have something to share, contribute.
