Digital Archives, SP-ARK

We are always on the lookout for new archival forms for film and media here and Sally Potter’s website points us to the online archive SP-ARK, which promises to be one that will be helpful in helping us rethink not only what an archive looks like, but how it might operate and connect scholars and practitioners in knowledge and conversation.

SP-ARK brings together production materials from Potter’s film, Orlando, in an online environment that includes components of networked world — tags, discussion forums, user contacts and messaging. Check out the video on this innovative effort by Sally Potter and Adventure films. The archive is still in its beta testing phase so those interested in touring and working with the site in full functionality should contact [email protected] with some info about yourself and your interest in the topic.
