Greg Lynn, Embryological House, 1998–­99, rendering (illustrated, p. 285 of his recent monograph, Greg Lynn Form). 26 whose concept of form is no more (and no less) than a disruption in a continuous surface, precisely stages the becoming of form through variable intensifications and manipulations in a continuous structure.

Since the historical testimony is founded on the physical duration, the former, too, is jeopardized by reproduction, in which the physical duration plays no part.  . 17 According to Benjamin, aura results from site specificity. It is because the work of art belongs to a “time and space” that it can possess the authority of a witness. ” It eliminates distance in time and space by making the image nomadic. Aura is closely associated with image fundamentalism. But as Benjamin was well aware, one of the primary aesthetic and political struggles of modernity has been the dislocation of images from any particular site, and their insertion in networks where they are characterized by motion, either potential or actual, and are capable of changing format—­of experiencing cascading chains of relocation and remediation.

Instead of a radiating nimbus of authenticity and authority underwritten by site specificity, we have the value of saturation, of being everywhere at once. In place of aura, there is buzz. Like a swarm of bees, a swarm of images makes a buzz, and like a new idea or trend, once an image (whether attached to a product, a policy, a person, or a work of art) achieves saturation, it has a “buzz” (diagram 3).
