at the end of the day, media that requires primitive playback devices, will probably have the best chance for longevity. i’d like to think that the categories are socratic: biological, elemental, and mechanical. any singular or combination of these can re-play analog media. for example photographs and cinema film (light and eyes), audio records (mechanical and ears), and storytelling/singing (eyes and voice).
