Ceci Pipe was inspired by Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte's 1929 masterpiece, "Ceci n'est pas une pipe," which translates in English to, "This is not a Pipe." The painting grapples with notions of representation and reality. Though the painting unambiguously depicts a classic tobacco pipe, it is also true that the painting, in and of itself, cannot be a pipe.
Ceci Pipe resumes this line of inquiry by blending 21st century modalities (e.g. the JUUL e-cigarette) with the aesthetic of a traditional early 20th century tobacco pipe, begging the question, if it looks like a pipe, and it smokes like a pipe, is it a pipe?
We at Ceci Pipe are still working on the answer to that, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy our fully-functioning, physical representation of Magritte's 20th century masterpiece. Compatible with JUUL e-cigarette and shipping worldwide.
