The digital remediation of collections is also the dematerialization of these collections. Concurrently with large national and international projects of digitization of cultural heritage, family and personal possessions like photograph albums, videos and letters are also remediated. The meaning of these objects originated in their own context and is linked to their emotional surplus value. These collections participate in the creation of the identity of the proprietor. When cultural content loses its material medium, in some circumstances it loses also its aura – it is no longer an artefact.
