    “This project is a remake or update of Barbara Kruger’s famous piece I Shop Therefore I Am. It is my opinion that a device such as the iPhone breeds self-importance since it allows one to be constantly connected to the world in several ways. It relates to self-worth, as in being an important member of society since it is the newest, most functional and adaptable gadget. Certainly this deviates far from Descartes’ original phrase ‘I think therefore I am’. Kruger’s parody of this saying suggests that being is related to the consumption of objects. My remake follows in the same vein, hinting that to own the most sophisticated piece of technology is to “be”: that is, to fit into society.”
