The rise of the Semantic Web has provided cultural heritage researchers and prac-titioners with several tools for providing semantically rich representations and in-teroperability of cultural heritage collections. Although indeed offering a lot of advantages, these tools, which come mostly in the form of ontologies and related vocabularies, do not provide a conceptual model for capturing contextual and en-vironmental dependencies, contributing to long-term digital preservation. This paper presents one of the key outcomes of the PERICLES FP7 project, the Linked Resource Model, for modelling dependencies as a set of evolving linked resources. The adoption of the proposed model and the consistency of its repre-sentation are evaluated via a specific instantiation involving the domain of digital video art.
