"All media are extensions of some human faculty, psychic or physical." This was the progressive thought of the American science philosopher Marshall McLuhan. In his books 'Understanding Media' (1964) and 'The Medium Is The Massage' (1967), he illustrates how the growth of technology has made the medium through which information is presented increasingly more decisive for our perception. Both the individual and our society can be influenced by this. 'Media Before Meaning: Perception Depends On The Medium Used' is an investigation into how different media act as extensions of the human senses, and thereby influence our perception. Five different media are highlighted: photogrammetric/virtual reality, language, video, sound, and physical objects.
