provocations #1 – Augmenting

If you’re augmenting something should that thing become part of the story you’re telling?

If the ‘real’ world is available to you as content, narrative or material it woudl be a shame to waste it.
Shouldn’t augmented reality relate to the reality you’re augmenting? Is it enough to just ‘add’?
