Who makes public records and how? In the future, how will archiving be carried out for the Internet? What sites will be included, what will be discarded, and for what reasons? Will market pressure alone determine online content?

The Conversation with Media Artist Seiko Karakama, April 16, 2004 revolved around Seiko’s videotape: Technology Evolution (2002, running time: 2min., audio: Techno Mixes by Seiko Karakama.) In that tape, she lined up several different video and data formats: VHS, Beta, CD’s, DVD’s, etc. The curving line snaked around through various rooms until she sent them tumbling. A convoluting ‘domino effect’ was achieved through use of visual edits. Electronic music ‘kept the beat.’
