At different stages in life, teddy bears and smartphones fulfill the same emotional needs. They serve as talismans from separation and loneliness, as constant companions as well as reliable sources of amusement. Which leads us to wonder, “Do we ever truly outgrow the need for these transitional objects?” By creating a nexus in which the manifold amusements of the technological present have the power to slay the simple comforts of the past, Hovnanian implies tension between the fragility of life and technology.
