ABSTRACT

There is a seemingly contradictory point in Kittler's argument for human perception and the body. On the one hand, he refers to the irrelevance of perception and exclusion of the body due to the development of media technology, and on the other hand, to the difference in recording systems centered on changes in the experience of perception, indicating that the human perceptual domain lies in the basis of understanding media technology. These contradictory points can be summarized by the following questions. Does digital technology exclude and overwhelm human perception, or extend the realm of its experience? In this study, it is assumed that the answer can be found in the change in M. Hansen's interpretation of the media theory of Kittler, and this study analyzed the content and meaning of Hanson's advocacy of Kittler's perception theory. It is revealed that Kittler was talking about “the unbiased homogeneity of humans and machines” and “indirect interaction of humans and machines.” It was also argued that this could mean two things about Kittler's perception theory. First, the interaction between work and audience in digital art becomes important, and the audience acting as a “framer” for digital images can be seen as an artistic metaphor and expression of the current technological media environment. Second, Kittler's post-humanitarian understanding of humans can be extended to cognitive discussions such as that of Andy Clark, who said that humans are being built continuously in constant interaction with the media environment.
