The aim is to analyze the processes in the perception of the content and form of the media as well as how their physical mass are received. in the tracked evolvement of media the concept of “eversion” by Marcus Novak is introduced to analyze the Head Mounted Display (HDM) media as they are more adaptable to their subjects. Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s understanding of perception and existence are being used in defining the notion of experience.
