The Digital Aura
New technologies provide opportunities to create identical reproductions of works of art. This started with photography and increased immensely with the emergence of the Internet. This thesis explores the value of art on the internet through the concept of Aura (the unique presence of a work in time, space and location) by Walter Benjamin, searching for a digital aura. The thesis is presented as a digital platform in which every word is linked to a video on Shutterstock, a stock video website. By clicking individual words the most relevant video will be shown, creating a unique narrative on its own.
