Vanessa by Alex Haniman

"The kind of reception in a state of distraction that to an increasing extent is becoming apparent in all fields of art is symptomatic of profound changes in apperception (...) The audience is an examiner, but a distracted one." Walter Benjamin, The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (1936)
