In the context of the lecture series BEST AVAILABLE COPY – the preservation of time-based media art reflecting its technology at the Academy of Fine Arts at the Institute Conservation – Restoration Almut Schilling discussed the concept of the digital patina.
A unique artifact was found in the Auer-Welsbach-Park in Vienna that was soon discovered to be a manifestation of information left behind by who could be called an “extra-human ethnologist”.
This feature portraits the excavation and restoration processes as well as what has been extracted as the content of the discovered message, telling the story of how a sonically focused being may perceive and comment on our visually dominated world.
