With this essay I would like to analyse the state of media art in light of the current pandemic caused by COVID-19, with a post-phenomenological lens. Theories of Ihde, Merleau-Ponty and thoughts of Peter-Paul Verbeek shall help me build the case in concluding that the current crisis has accelerated the growing complexities of human and technology relations. Even though the institutions and cultural sector as a whole would suffer major economic losses, the potential for media art will grow many folds during and post the crisis because of these increased complexities.
