Over the last years, digital preservation has become a particularly
active research area. While several initiatives are dealing with
the preservation of standard document formats, the challenges of preserving multimedia objects and pieces of electronic art are still to be tackled. This paper presents the findings of a pilot project for preserving born-digital interactive multimedia art. We describe the specific challenges the collection poses to digital preservation and the results of a case study identifying requirements on the preservation of interactive artworks.
