#2 Talking Media Conservation with MoMA's Ben Fino-Radin

In this episode of Library Bytegeist, we sat down with Ben Fino-Radin, a Media Conservator at MoMA, to talk about his approach to media conservation, what to do when art installations involve super computers, and his favorite old medium. Many thanks to Kate Lewis, Ben Fino-Radin, Peter Oleksik, and the Time-Based Media Art team at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum for their online writings that gave me the background information for this podcast.
