    In contemporary digital art computer technology plays an integral part not only in the creation of art pieces but also in their func- tioning as art works. Such digital art works have usually a performative or interactive character and therefore rely on an underlying working com- puter system. Since computer and information technology advances with such unrelenting pace, hardware and software modules soon become ob- solete. How to preserve such digital art works in these circumstances from a art conservation standpoint is much debated but not clear yet. In this article we present and discuss issues in the conservation of digital art works using a case study of a ten years old interactive art installation.
