    The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction by Walter Benjamin

    Walther Benjamin’s essay ’The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction’ writes: “the authenticity of a thing is the essence of all that is transmissible from its beginning, ranging from its substantive duration to its testimony to the history which it has experienced”. Benjamin acknowledges the reality of artistic reproduction throughout history, although he suggests that mechanical reproduction introduced an entirely new and revolutionary change in the experience of the artwork. With mechanical reproduction, which appears in its most radical forms in film and photography, millions of images of an original are circulated, all of which lack the “authentic” aura of their source.

    Through this notion the project circulated around the title of the book, set in the published three languages, continually degrading through each spread by printing and scanning with 99% resizing each time, continuing and questioning the aura of the mechanical reproduction in the digital world where the digital and analogue reproduction continues and cancelling each others authenticity. In that sense you can see the degradiation throughout the book, while the transformation being unnoticeable at first, the contuniation of the degrading title creates awareness of the ’analogue’ reproduction status in todays society.

    In 1912, Dr. Thorild Wulff traveled to China to buy items for R?hsska Museum. He was famous for his collectiveness and his adventures.

    When the R?hsska Museum opened in 1916, the China Collection was given a prominent place, at the top of the building. But only a small part of all that Thorild Wulff had collected in China came to stay in the museum. Wulff’s China collection is no longer left in its original scope. Here for the first time the entire collection is presented.

    The pattern is an exploration of scale, where as on distance it looks like water ripples and up close it creates an unknown texture resembling shadow.

    It’s meant for public transport, especially for the seats, to create a sea of movement with a depth from the viewers perspective.

The only difference is the ISBN number and the text on the spine. The spine creates multiple coherent stories by rearranging them in the bookshelf, to further unify them.

    The texts come from the chapter about the end of the world from the different religions individual script.
