A viewer who spends only a minute or two with a digital artwork might see only one configuration of an essentially non‐linear project. The context and logic of a particular sequence may remain unclear. Every art project is embedded in a context, but audiences of digital art might require layers of contextual information, both relating to the materiality of the work and the logic behind its process, and tran­ scending the work itself. The characteristics of digital art require an understanding of computational processes that cannot be taken for granted among an art audience at large.

Ben Fino‐Radin’s chapter on tools, methods, and strategies of digital conservation gives an introduction to the nuts and bolts of this emerging field of practice. Grounded in the theory and ethics of conservation, his text provides hands‐on technical guidance and uses case studies to illustrate how tools and methods can be applied. He surveys the process of “learning the work” through the initial conservation assessment and artist interview; the capture and storage of the piece; and the role of emulation, virtualization, as well as recreation, reinterpretation, and replacement as preservation strategies.
