In reference to the essay titled The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction by Walter Benjamin, I created something that would question and open discussion onto a more present time period of art making within the digital age. This book documents over 100 different repeated hyperlinks to my personalized Google search results of “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction”. I did this to refer to something known as a “filter bubble” which is a website algorithm that selectively guesses what information a user would like to see based on information about that user or previous searches. Throughout this book, it was my intention to distribute ironic dispositions to contrast early reproduced and printed artworks to a present time of digital reproduction through the non-physical world of the Internet.
