Art In the Age of Mechanical Reproduction
 
 

Walter Benjamin's piece The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (1936) probably couldn't have taken into account the possibility of distributed means of manufacture once again, that a file could be put on blast and distributed around the world to then be made at the leisure of anyone with access to the machine to automatically make it. To help incorporate that concept, I re-imagined the book as a surface only representation of the text.
