Abstract- Dynamics of Sustainability

One metric for wellness of any institution is how it sustains itself, and though media arts institutions are no exceptions, their means of sustainability historically have been unstable, opaque, and not well-understood. Based on research from a Rockefeller Foundation sponsored Leonardo study, an overview of sustainability models is presented. Current and historical examples will be examined, particularly ones in which the author had personal experience. For more information, please see http://www.artslab.net/
