The augmented reality layers question the legitimacy of language/composition and the intention of those who legitimize it (seen metaphorically through the principles of formal compositional notation versus the experimental nature of graphic notation). Derrida, speaking about language and following from Martin Heidegger, calls for a “critical re-evaluation of the relationship between text and meaning.” This work is meant to offer such a re-evaluation.
