Ephemera – When?

India ink and graphite on paper 6″ x 8″

I’ve been  thinking about transferring an image I made or saw into a digital photograph. I can upload it to the internet. The photograph of the image becomes a piece of art. I can appreciate it as art. I can print the image on paper or leave it in its virtual form on my computer screen. Eventually, the above image will become ephemeral and disintegrate. This image could last as long as a painting or an old master drawing. Maybe forever. Does virtual information last forever?
