(Electronic Media) Emulation as a Conservation Strategy for Software-Based Art

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel will include case study presentations to discuss emulation as a conservation strategy. We will begin by defining emulation and describing how it works; the resources required to implement emulation; and criteria to determine whether emulation is an appropriate strategy for a given work of software-based art. We will also clarify the similarities and differences between virtualization and emulation in our introduction and in our case studies. The present landscape of emulation technologies and strategies, their costs, barriers to entry, and relative merits will be discussed.
