The history of technological art in Russia has not been written yet, and in the meantime, more and more events in this area are being held. Some of them are not documented and disappear along with artworks that are difficult to preserve and reproduce.
Digital technologies make it possible to write a “flexible” history, continuously supplementing it with new facts and saturating it with details. The reader of digital history has the opportunity to look at the material from different perspectives, using visualization tools, as well as digital analysis, and to focus on various details.
The Database “MIR” project is aimed at preserving, popularizing, and researching experiments at the intersection of art, science, and technology. The database is being created for art researchers, curators, artists, students, and everyone interested in the history of technological art and artscience.
