I just came across Lev Manovich’s project Little Movies (2001), “a lyrical and theoretical project about the aesthetics of digital cinema, and a eulogy to its earliest form: QuickTime.”
Interestingly, it is now impossible to view the films without an outdated version of Quicktime and Explorer/Netscape.  So, it has (perhaps inadvertently) become a project that eulogizes early digital while aestheticizing the absent archive, missing image, and broken link.
