ADA: THOUSANDS OF ARTWORKS
Since its foundation in 1999, the ARCHIVE OF DIGITAL ART (former Database of Virtual Art) has grown to be the most important online archive for digital art. In cooperation with established media artists, researchers and institutions it has been documenting the rapidly evolving world of digital art and its related fields for more than a decade and contains today a selection of thousands of artworks at the intersection of art, science and technology.
COLLABORATIVE ARCHIVING OF DIGITAL ART
The large assortment of information on Sean CUBITT and hundreds of other leading scholars and artists were carried out by the scholars and artists themselves in assistance with members of the ADA community. The new ADA web tool allows members to archive artist statements, works descriptions, literature, information on exhibitions, high resolution images, blueprints, videos etc. Artists and scholars are invited to contribute actively to the archive and to work collaboratively on the documentation and analysis of digital art.
EXPANDED DOCUMENTATION FOR THE NEEDS OF DIGITAL ART
Due to the processual, ephemeral, interactive, technology-based and fundamentally context-dependent character of digital art, it is at risk for becoming extinct without an adequate documentation. Therefore, the ADA is based on an expanded concept of documentation, which takes account of the specific conditions of digital art.
