Response to Walter Benjamin's text

Amongst all the ideas that Walter Benjamin discussed in the text, I was interested in the idea of the loss of aura in the production process most.

I had attempted to present the idea of the loss of aura:
 using 2 cameras and taking photos of each other screens to show the idea of a reproductive process.

The images became more and more blurry one after one, the uniqueness of the apple and the leaf was lost once the reproduction process had been carried out, the aura could not be reformed in any way.
