The Work of Art in the Epoch of Technical Reproducibility
“Benjamin’s essay also scents possibilities for a post-bourgeois object, a non-auratic multiple, prefigured in photography and film. This technical multiple does not squash out authentic experience but translates it into object-forms and forms of experience appropriate for a modern age”.

"The physico-spatial ‘bringing closer’ of new cultural forms allowed by mass reproduction provides a ‘re-modelling’ of pre-industrial folkloric relations of space. Crucial to the earlier epic tradition is a reliance on the propinquity of a collective of listeners. Industrial capitalist relations corrode the oral communicability of experience, but technical reproduction reimburses that change, instituting new potential for a familiarity between receivers and producers, once more in the form of collective experience: through mediated mass-produced things. Space is recovered technically." (8)

Tacita Dean writes:
"Analogue, it seems, is a description—a description, in fact of all things I hold dear. It is a word that means proportion and likeness, and is according to one explanation, a representation of an object that resembles the original; not a transcription or a translation but an equivalent in a parallel form: continuously variable, measurable and material. Everything we can quantify physically is analogue: length, width, voltage and pressure. Telephones are analogue; the hands of watches that turn with the rotation of the earth are analogue; writing is analogue; drawing is analogue. Even crossing out is analogue. Thinking too becomes analogue when it is materialised into a concrete form ..."
