    • 8. WALTER BENJAMIN & AURA In "The Work of Art & the Age of Mechanical Reproduction,” (1936) Benjamin proclaims, "that which withers in the age of mechanical reproduction is the aura of the work of art.” He defines the aura of a natural object as "the unique phenomenon of a distance, however close it may be." In later writings, Benjamin continued to explore the idea of aura, explaining, “To experience the aura of a phenomenon we look at means to invest it with the ability to look back at us.”
    • 9. After a year of studying virtual subjectivity in Second Life, I have come to the following conclusions: Over time, as we develop our relationship with our own avatar, we invest it with that ability to look back at us; we give it aura. Virtual art creates virtual aura.
    • 10. Experiencing immersive & interactive virtual art is one of the ways we create virtual aura. Immersive Scale At Greenies
    • 11. The paradox of closeness & distance in a virtual world creates new conditions for aura, for looking & looking back, for experience, subjectivity, identity, community, meaning, & art.
