The physical release of the ID RATHER BE AN IPHONE music album (saasfee*rec.) is a 40-pages interactive augmented reality piece, designed as a timeline to the 30 min length of the album. The booklet is music decoded in visual language; a narrative told over the album's 11 tracks. It features videos, animations and alternative fragments of the music, which can be discovered by scanning booklets pages with a camera of a smartphone, with a help of an Augmented Reality app. Smartphone based society is thus forced into utilisation of reality enhancing tools, giving a taste of a cyborg-story to each user of the booklet.
