Digital forensics at the Digital Humanities 2013 conference

Digital forensics tools were originally designed (as the name suggests) for the analysis of data on computer hardware in relation to legal investigations, such as “cybercrime”, or simply crime that may have left a digital trace on computers or storage devices. The potential of these tools for analysing born-digital material in archival or digital curation contexts is becoming more widely understood – however, the available...

Introducing Significant Environment Information and the PERICLES Extraction Tool

Good news everyone: The PERICLES Extraction Tool (PET) has been set free! PET is a framework for the extraction of information from the creation and use environments of digital data. PET works outside the established metadata perspectives and their firm structures by monitoring and collecting information from the whole system environment during the use of data. It extracts scenario related information, which increases the data...

Another successful work meeting on ontologies

The Centre for Research & Technology, Hellas (CERTH) hosted our fourth technical workshop on the Linked Resource Model (LRM), the LRM service, domain ontologies, ecosystem model and policies. The workshop took place in Thessaloniki, Greece, on 28-30 July 2015 (see the other blog entries of the past meetings [1] [2] [3] ). The LRM provides the concepts and languages for the other models, such as primarily the...

The EcoBuilder - A Tool to Integrate the Digital Ecosystem Model into the PERICLES picture

We are delighted to announce the release of the Digital Ecosystem Model (DEM) and the EcoBuilder , a Java tool to create DEM instances. The DEM is an ontology for modelling the interwoven relations, dependencies, and interactions of entities in digital ecosystems. Digital ecosystems encompass digital objects and their environments including their technical infrastructure, community relations, policies, and processes. The DEM...

Art & Media - Digital Video Art Scenario

Ingest and the Conservation of Media Components Tate has approximately 500 video artworks ranging from complex multi channel video installations to simple single channel videos. Since the early 1990s an uncompressed component digital master tape has been created for all standard definition video works entering the collection. These have then been migrated onto new stock and new formats every 7 - 9 years. The demise of digital...

Art & Media - Media Production Scenario

Commissioning to Preservation Ingest and Re-use Tate has its own media production unit, Tate Media, which produces a large volume of audio-visual content. This content aims to increase access to Tate’s collection and exhibitions, and contributes to Tate’s core mission of increasing public understanding and enjoyment of British, modern and contemporary art. The content is published online via the Tate Channel:...

Art & Media - Software-Based Art Scenario

Long-term display and the potential for virtualization of an artwork Tate define Software-Based Artwork as any for which software is the core medium. The first acquisition of a Software-Based Artwork (SBA) took place in 2003, with Michael Craig-Martin’s Becoming (2003) and currently there are eight SBAs in Tate’s collection and one in the process of being acquired. The number of works acquired is increasing slowly but...

Art & Media - Born Digital Archive scenario

Acquisition of a born-digital archive collection Tate Archive acquires material on British art from 1900. Our aim is to document the British art world in a broad sense, and we collect material relating to artists as well as other art world figures and institutions such as critics, curators and galleries. The Archive contains a wide range of different types of material, including correspondence, writings, diaries, notebooks,...

Science - Space Science scenario

Semantic models of data dependencies Image: Solar on the ISS Columbus module, Courtesy of the European Space Agency One of the PERICLES case study partners, B.USOC, supports experiments on the International Space Station (ISS) and is the curator of both the raw science and operations data. Space Science experiments are typically very expensive to design, develop, and operate, as are the results to...

The EcoBuilder and Digital Ecosystem Modelling

This is an introduction to the Ecobuilder, a tool for the creation of Digital Ecosystem Models (DEMs) via Java API or via GUI developed by Anna-Grit Eggers with the University of Goettingen (Germany). The DEM is a means to express the network of dependencies, and interactions of entities in digital ecosystems. The tool has been developed within PERICLES, a four-year Integrated Project (2013-2017) funded by the European Union under...

Deliverables

First version of Integration Framework and API Implementation

This document is a summary of the first version of a framework for integrating and testing components in the PERICLES project. This document describes a test-driven approach to integration for a conceptual system framework based on the OAIS model, describing the main components that might be expected in such a framework, and the interactions between them in terms of expected behaviours and protocols for communication. The...

Final version of integration framework and API implementation

This document describes the final version of the PERICLES integration framework which has been developed to support a scenario-based approach to archive and preservation operations and facilitate easier testability and usability evaluation. 

Final version of Test Bed Implementation

This deliverable describes the final version of the PERICLES experimental Testbed for model-driven preservation.

Interdisciplinary Discussions about the Conservation of Software-Based Art

This report summarises the outcomes and examines some key questions from the discussions hosted by Tate for the Community of Practice group on Software-based Art Conservation Challenges. The idea for this series of meetings arose from the realisation that managing technical change in software-based art is not only a common concern for practitioners working in the field but also of interest to the research community. A group of...

The Lives of Digital Things: A Community of Practice Dialogue

This report summarises the key topics and take-home messages from the discussions hosted by Tate for the Community of Practice group on the Lives of Digital Things. The report was compiled from four virtual conversations the primary aim of which was to explore the different ways in which the ‘Lives of digital things’ are thought about through different digital preservation practices and contexts.
