“We must expect great innovations to transform the entire technique of the arts, thereby affecting artistic intervention itself and perhaps even bringing about an amazing change in our very notion of art.” —Paul Valéry
It is here that we would like to depart from Walter Benjamin’s theory that art in the age of mechanical reproducibility loses its aura; instead, we assert that the reproduction of a work of art can re-activate the aura when it meets a beholder in their own particular situation. In ever evolving mediums of artistic reproduction, such as print, we find the democratic multiple: an art form that avails itself to a wider audience.
