Recovering Eyebeam’s Archive
Jonathan Minard, a current Fellow at Eyebeam, put together this video about the post-Sandy recovery effort of their media archive that was flooded during the storm. It was a great collaborative effort put into place by Jonathan, Erik Piil, and the AVPS team with tons of support from the NYU’s Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program and Institute of Fine Arts, MoMA, Rhizome, Heritage Preservation, a number of past Eyebeam Fellows, and more. Still lots of work to do to transfer the content to new formats, but everyone’s help and quick response ensured that at least part of this important piece of art history will be saved. Thanks to everyone!
