Silvia is a visiting postgraduate student from the University of Bologna. She is researching into the planned obsolescence in the new media and, more specifically, the methods through which New Media Art is preserved.
The problem is current and related to the practices of many artists, especially with the increase in the use of new technologies in art. The research concentrates on the techniques of conservation of New Media Art, both investigating the solutions adopted in the past and exploring possible current and future ones. This research represents the beginning of a long-run research path exploring deeply, the possible collaborations between New Media Art and Machine Learning for conservation.
