Inspired by Walter Benjamin’s famous article, “The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction,” Mehrdad Afsari created this series of works in the course of ten years. Here, we see images repeated 36 times, all of which were shot within ten seconds. They seem to be identical, but they are not, for they are taken in different times. The result is 36 frames, made of 36 images, making a total of 46656 frames. These moments do not exist anymore.
