Towards An Enactive Medium for Perception and Action;Leveraging Large Language Models (LLMs) to Create Self-Adapting, Psychologically + Socially Priming Mediums
This thesis is a framework that aims to bridge the gap between perception and action by creating an enactive medium that allows both to work together seamlessly in discussing the Anthropocene. It is a call for collective action for designers, engineers, and policymakers to develop mediums that enable individuals and communities to engage in meaningful and impactful action toward a sustainable future. It is also a philosophical and ethical stance that recognizes the interdependence of perception and action. The medium will enable a better understanding of the impact of human actions on the environment, build effective capacities to counter these impacts and suggest actions to take based on insights earned through research and experimentation. anthropo•sense is a comprehensive approach that considers the needs of our society and the environment, aiming to address the changes of the Anthropocene.
