This paper is concerned with examining how emerging spatial technologies are reconfiguring perception. The dominant perceptive regimen is still based on the Cartesian split (subject-object separation). We see matter as separated from mind, a perceptive model inherited from literacy-Cartesian culture that has not yet digested the new changes brought about by hybrid techniques and methodologies. This dominance is also reflected in the way we deal with the consensus construction of reality alongside our definitions of what consciousness is and can be. The role that hybrid space plays in the construction and transformation of perception through the practise of context engineering will be examined. Context engineering is understood as an “intermediality” practice for exploring perceptual augmentation by giving us control over our senses, allowing us to adjust them in real time.
