This paper proposes the concept of enactive system as an alternative to the standard assumption of the human-computer-interaction and elaborates the idea of content mediation as enactive media. Our system consists of the two elements coupled in a holistic manner by means of bodily and spatial involvement, or enactment. It has two directions and is recursive by nature involving the impact of the technology on the human agent and the effect of the human experience on the technology. Instead of the standard explicit interface in the middle there is an implicit connecting surface, based on unconscious psychophysiological reactions. Our aim is not only to point out an analytic approach to existing media systems, but also to develop radically novel media concepts implied by the concept.
