Tyler Durden: You're not your job. You're not how much money you have in the bank. You're not the car you drive. You're not the contents of your wallet. You're not your fucking khakis.
- Fight Club (1999 - when this sort of thing still sounded profound)
The Tower is a thing of beauty, with a regrettably tedious Fight Clubesque message ("we've ceased to be citizens and are now just consumers") that overlooks the last couple of decades of extremism, recession, digital disruption and civic activism. The V&A says:
With prices rising as the Tower ascends, it confronts us with the choices we make as consumers, through necessity or desire.
Made in Stoke-on-Trent by 1882 Ltd, each fine bone china shop is individually signed by the artist. The shops are exclusively for sale through the V&A, priced between £95 and £6000.
