Recognized as one of the first sites to host art pieces for the Internet, Turbulence has developed a relentless task of promoting digital art, commissioning projects by artists from all over the world, from its beginnings in 1996, until the end of 2016. It was founded by artists Helen Thorington and Jo-Anne Green and today, its archive has some 230 original pieces.
The MEIAC hosts the works of this prestigious international digital art archive.
Faced with the inevitable situation of the closure of Turbulence in 2016, the MEIAC, based on the experience it has developed with NETescopio, its own archive of digital works, has received the proposal to host this archive from that American institution. The MEIAC has accepted this offer, and has agreed to host the works of this important archive on the museum's web server, so that they can be visited by the international public through the MEIAC website.
After carrying out a technical evaluation of the material received in order to migrate it to the museum's server, and subsequently carrying out restoration work on those pieces that required it, the MEIAC has developed a database that can be browsed both in English, the original language, and in Spanish, thus opening up access to the Spanish-speaking public.
