Objet petit a | Interactive Canvas
Objet petit a is an interactive canvas in form of a table done as part of an. Art Residency at Sensisan, Goa.
Objet petit a stands for the unattainable object of desire as described in the In the psychoanalytic theory of Jacques Lacan. Here it is more in the sense of the object cause of desire as it is also sometimes called in theory. Just as the agalma is a precious object hidden in a worthless box, so objet petit a is the object of desire which we seek in the Other.
The “canvas” can take many forms, all of which are eventually unimportant. A pond of endless possibilities in form of an object cause for our mind towards the desire of imagination.
"The objet a is a paradoxical “object” directly because of the relation between its emergence and loss."
