In this paper a position about the relation between media and cognition will be discussed. In particular, I will try to verify if media and technology are constitutive extensions of the human aesthetic experience. In order to support this statement, opposite or complementary stances - including extended mind hypotesis, enactive cognition, cognitive archaeology, media theory and other conceptual frameworks - will be evaluated and discussed; moreover, some case studies will contribute to better illustrate the scenario.
