The exhibition Seeing Double: Emulation in Theory and Practice (19 March to 16 May 2004) tests the promise of an experimental treatment (emulation) for rescuing new media art from the ravages of time. Seeing Double features a series of original art installations paired with their emulated versions.

This exhibition offers a unique opportunity for both art experts and the public to compare both versions directly and decide for themselves whether the re-creations capture the spirit of the originals. This exhibition was organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in partnership with the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology.
