Simulacra and Simulation Response, Kevin Keane

We live in a heavily visual world, thus making simulacra a significant concept that coincides with our everyday life. Corporations and advertisement are almost all developed through strong imaginary and how they are represented. While reading this essay it reminded me of famous images like the Mona Lisa and how I think I know what the Mona Lisa looks like and I could describe it, yet I have really never seen the authentic Mona Lisa. The replication of reality has taken this authenticity and intertwined it with the simulacra.
