I publish everything on gitorious or keep it in private repos on
bitbucket, I keep copies on multiple USB hard disks, I backup offsite
via rsync and OwnCloud, and I keep multiple DVD backups at different
locations with family members.

I also convert work to new formats as they become popular and check that
work runs/displays in current versions of software periodically.

The expensive parts are the rsync and the hard disks. The laborious part
is making sure everything runs.

The preservation of artistic digital objects was studied by the InterPARES
2 project.  You will find information in this book:

Also, you may find these guidlines useful:

Here you will find a number of very intersting and useful case studies:

I BCC'd the project director and will see if she can provide any additional
information.

Cheers
