"You are born modern, you do not become so"

The quote that I chose for my postmodernism project is “You are born modern, you do not become so.” For this project, I used Photoshop to create “modern” babies. The denotative meaning of my project is that you are born modern. I created babies using modern technology, participating in modern trends (Ray Bans, man buns), and babies that are known for the meme that they are a part of. This collage goes along with the quote “You are born modern, you do not become so,” with the idea that the babies are too young to know what modern technology or trends are, but they’re already using them.

The connotative and ideological meanings that can be drawn from my project are that what we view as “modern” depends on the individual person. I may have a different idea of what is modern than the person sitting next to me does. I chose to use Apple products, Ray Bans, Beats, selfies, memes, man buns, etc., but did not utilize things like modern art or modern music.
