Artists who create digital artworks face the problem of preservation much sooner than artists who work with more traditional materials. Artists who wish their work to endure always ready for exhibition, must give some thought to preservation strategies from the moment the artwork is created. The choices of standard tools, documentation and modes of distribution are all part of this process.

An interest in the historical value of digital artworks also encourages the institutions that exhibit them to make this particular value visible, in addition to the appropriate conservation of the work. This leads us to reconsider the conservation strategies which advocate the systematic and continuous updating of non-functioning or obsolete devices.
