We will describe recent work of the EU FP7 PERICLES project on digital preservation, which is developing models, methods and tools to deal with the management of change to enable long term reuse of digital content. Motivated by examples in space science experiments and time-based media art, we focus on the preservation of complex digital objects, which include not only final datasets, but also intermediate data, software, documentation, policies and user communities. The talk will outline our approaches to dealing with technological, policy and semantic change, based on capture and modelling of the environment.
