According to critical media scholar Villem Flusser each medium is created by man as an explanation of the world in order to facilitate his orientation within society. Yet, each medium is posessed by the same sly dialectics: instead of representing the world, media present the world as it is perceived by them. In other words, one could state that media determine our visiion upon the world and not the other way around.
