I listened to the bit re: Origin of Work of Art. Once he got to his comments about the the focus of the lecture (after the first 8 minutes) I found it a useful reminder of the essay. But that's all that was available.
The visuals here were distracting, since he simply was lecturing. I wonder if as he went along, he might have noted how this presentation was not a work of art, since only its usefulness was evident??
