‘Inside the aura of the beholder’
Interpretation. Compatibility, Authenticity.
Walter Benjamin states in Art, Aura and Authenticity: The aura is an effect of a work of art being uniquely
present in time and space. It is connected to the idea of authenticity. A reproduced artwork is never fully
present. The digital environment is a new space where artists want to explore as this is a new unknown
territory open to investigation.
