What we especially like about the gigantic Rubber Duckie that floats around the world, the creation of Dutch artist, Florentijn Hofman, is that there is no political message or grand scheme behind it. It was just made to make people feel better. As the artist states, "The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them." We don't know whether to cry or call shenanigans. The project was started in 2009... and has visited Osaka, Auckland, Hasselt, St Nazaire, Sao Paulo, Elst, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Nurnberg, Wassenaar, and Amsterdam again. (via)
