Archival Science, Digital Forensics, and New Media Art
Digital archivists and traditional digital forensics practitioners have
significant points of convergence as well as notable differences between
their work. This paper provides an overview of how digital archivists use
digital forensics tools and techniques to approach their work, comparing
and contrasting archival with traditional computer forensics. Archives
encounter a wide range of digital materials. This paper details a
specific example within archival forensics—the analysis of complex,
interactive, new media digital artworks. From this, the paper concludes
with considerations for future directions and recommendations to the
traditional forensics community to support the needs of cultural heritage
