The Many Uses of Rhizome’s New Social Media Preservation Tool.
The Many Uses of Rhizome’s New Social Media Preservation Tool. Benjamin Sutton. Hyperallergic Media. October 21, 2014.
New York’s digital art nonprofit Rhizome is developing Colloq, a conservation tool to help artists preserve social media projects not only by archiving them, but by replicating the exact look and layout of the sites used, and the interactions with other users. The idea for Colloq came from the realization that Rhizome will be unable to accession new, contemporary Internet art if we don’t rethink archival practices. Colloq is still in its early stages of development.
