“The subject doesn’t sce the objet petit a, but its absence from the visual field is what makes the subject desire to look.” – the objet petit a remains fundamentally inaccessible. It has no actual existence but nonetheless serves to trigger the desire of the subject. It is the inaction that transforms the everyday object into an object of desire, thereby eroticizing the visual field.
