Andy once said that someone’s “aura” is all in the other person’s eyes – it’s only what somebody else can see and only as much of it as they want to.
“When you just see somebody on the street, they can really have an aura. But then when they open their mouth, there goes the aura. ‘Aura’ must be until you open your mouth.”
– Andy Warhol (The Philosophy of Andy Warhol)
