Slavoj Zizek Totes
Collage based on the idea that a teapot might be flying in space. “Nobody can prove that there is not between the Earth and Mars a china teapot revolving in an elliptical orbit, but nobody thinks this sufficiently likely to be taken into account in practice.” Bertrand Russell.

Coffee-without-milk instead of coffee-without-cream serving movie scene from Ernst Lubitsch’s black and white classic “Ninocka” is one of Slavoj Žižek’s all time favorite anecdotal examples that Slovenian marxist-lacanian philosopher uses to illustrate.. well, basically all sorts of things, the complex functioning of Jacques Lacan’s “objet petit a” (object small a) topological concept being only one of particulars. Thus the idea of an imaginary creamers brand designed to let you enjoy your morning coffee neither with cream (or milk) nor just plain but specifically with-without-cream which is already whole other cup of coffee – just the way you like it!
