DEVELOPING STRATEGIES FOR THE CONSERVATION OF INSTALLATIONS INCORPORATING TIME-BASED MEDIA WITH REFERENCE TO GARY HILL'S BETWEEN CINEMA AND A HARD PLACE

PIP LAURENSON


ABSTRACT—Strategies for the conservation of a complex installation by Gary Hill are discussed with special reference to the cathode ray tube monitors and the system that controls the distribution of sound and images. The conservator's role and responsibilities in the care of time-based media artworks are explored, and aspects of this new area of conservation are related to traditional notions of conservation and collections care. This article is a result of TechArchaeology: A Symposium on Installation Art Preservation.
