an augmented identity As Augmented Reality becomes embedded within everyday life, the digital world will create layers of intangible possibilities on top of reality. This will have an effect on the way we project identity. When we take a look at today’s Snapchat filters for example, we can already see how they are being used to communicate emotions, alter one’s image and transform one’s identity. 
However, as the technology progresses, this digital layer will go beyond cute cat ears and kawaii eyes in our selfies. Extending beyond faces, this technology will manipulate the body, and the overall image we show in public everyday, viewable to others through AR lenses. In Hyperstition, I put myself in the role of an identity designer of the future, using AR as a new step in the discipline of fashion.
