Benjamin's Theory of the Aura

Benjamin's Theory of the Aura

The Aura in Benjamin dictionary is that emotions the artist provided to the piece of art, and how it's been lost through the years. for me I think that it's not been lost, it's just that there's more and more artists in the universe and each one of them I believe has some kind of aura or essence in their work. and ideas will never end, people will keep give more to art world either it's within aura or just to add something to art itself.

it's the same thing when photography was released, everyone thought that this is the end of the aura and no more emotion to the piece of art will be providing. but as we all can see photography has been a big major in art no doubt about it, it's also raised the platforms of art to some kind of new level, and it will continue to do that as long as people has cameras.

the aura theory is very complicated to me I really tried to understand the idea behind it, but every time i think I got it, I start to realize that it's complicated more and more. but I hope you get the idea I'm trying to make.

thank you
