For a generation, institutions from the Museum of Modern Art in New York to the Pompidou Center in Paris have been collecting digital art. But in trying to restore the Davis work, which was finally debugged and reposted at the end of May, the Whitney encountered what many exhibitors, collectors and artists are also discovering: the 1s and 0s of digital art degrade far more rapidly than traditional visual art does, and the demands of upkeep are much higher. Nor is the way forward clear.

On the upkeep challenges of digital art.

Like most aphorisms, the adage “art imitates life” is applicable in many cases, but is especially so when remarking on the stunning canvas that is the rainbow eucalyptus tree. Resembling some sort of psychedelic Pollock painting, what one might easily confuse for frenzied, highly saturated brush strokes is actually Mother Nature’s grunt work. This brand of eucalyptus tree sheds its bark in patches sporadically throughout the year and in the process transforms into a technicolor dream. Initially, the exposed undergrowth is bright green, though as it matures the colors shift to blue, purple, orange and then finally maroon tones.

This is what it looks like when you give a bunch of kids a white room and colored stickers.
