As the characteristics, attributes, and accepted way of media have been changing with newly emerging media, human recognition and the communication structure have also been changing. Media are not isolated from the others and emerge in the cultural context; With the drive to juxtapose the old and the new to be in diversified forms, the old media are utilized and improved. In this rapidly changing circumstance by the media, we attempt to theoretically explore the concept and characteristics of visual communication and the media related to augmented reality. Augmented reality does not create something out of nothing but renew the expression; Thus, it reforms the structure of communication. Therefore, there is a significance to look into theories of W.Benjamin, M.McLuhan, Norbert Bolz, and Jean Baudrillard who linked the past to the present in accordance with the new era of communication for us to find out the meaning of augmented reality in the current cultural context.
