- Authenticity as Purity:
The original form of something is true and legitimate, aadaptations, appropriations by others are all..
- Authenticity by Tradition
Surfaces/Styles have meaning fixed by tradition, these traditional ways of doing things have value because thats the way you do it... rejection of the past destroys value.
- Authenticity as "Aura"
This is revealed through evidence of aging of use- changes that can only occur through time. Obviously old things are appreciated by some, but also not to others. This allows age to be revealed and can be used for falsification.
Objective view, look down, impersonal, subjective is more personal/ and as a close up view. More on Subjective Authenticity in my next post.
