The chapter i choose was chapter four. I found this chapter to have the most meaning to me.
Walter Benjamin’s essay The Work Of Art In The Age Of Mechanical Reproductions, is an essential reference that addresses issues of art in the age of technology. His issue is where is the art in reproducing a picture, either from a still photo or from any movie camera image. This raises the issue of value that a piece of art holds when it is the only copy.
