What We All Lack (Ce qui manque à nous tous)

A clear glass bubble rests on the bowl of a plain white clay pipe. Along the stem of the pipe are the words, "Ce que [sic] manque à nous tous."
Man Ray
1962
Playing with the meaning attached to the pipe, a staple of Dadaist and Surrealist conceptual art, Man Ray invites us to make a story that connects the objects, the pipe and the bubble, and the title, "What We All Lack."
