The difference between augmented reality

and virtual reality is a Bengal tiger

called Richard Parker

who emerges from Life of Pi [private]

and walks down Oxford Street

– an animal framed by a mortal hand,

captured in a screen which shatters

the illusion that seeing is believing.

 

We construct our own versions

of the world, so why not look

through a bus stop window

and see what we want to see.

“Life is a story

…you can choose your story”. [/private]
