Marialaura et al.,

Because what goes uncontested is often taken for truth, I believe we need to continue to make the case for the relevance of new media art in those places least likely to believe it, namely the hidebound art world.

I don't think that case is hard to make. Some on this list will be familiar with a little number-crunching from the essay "Out of the Hothouse and into the World" that concludes the Met has 2.5 visits per artwork while Rhizome has 7,000.

As far as the seemingly unstoppable disintegration of new media art, I invite practitioners everywhere  to consider some of the radical strategies proposed in the book Re-Collection: Art, New Media, and Social Memory, which just hit the shelves this week.

From emulation to DNA storage to proliferative preservation, co-author Richard Rinehart and I hope the book will open new attitudes and toolkits for amateur and professional preservators alike.
