Data Drift: Archiving Media and Data Art in the 21st Century
RIXC, LiepU MPLab (2015)

Malraux's imaginary museum has become a reality of our digital age. Every day, a massive amount of new visual, textual and transactional data is added to this vast archive. How do we decide what bits of contemporary digital culture to preserve, study and curate given that its universe is constantly expanding? This full-color, 296-page book combines a selection of papers presented in the Media Art Histories: Renew conference, selections from the Save As exhibition, and new texts written for this volume. It also contains the catalog of Data Drift exhibition of data art and data design (curated by Rasa Smite, Raitis Smits, and Lev Manovich). The book is published in connection with the RIXC annual 2015 festival that took place in Riga, Latvia.

Lev Manovich is a professor of computer science at the Graduate Center.
