The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction
I don't think Walter Benjamin was quite right in his essay The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction although the gist of it still stands, but either way, after Jen Bekman's prodding I'm considering following Julian Thomas' lead and offering an edition of affordable art for sale. And don't worry, the aura of the authentic original will be detectable as you hold the print in your hand...
So stay tuned
PS - if anyone's aggregate/feed popped up with a post detailing the edition, I accidentally published rather than saved a rough draft last night - doh... keep your eyes peeled Monday
