The Giant Rubber Duckie by Florentijn Hofman

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 26, 2012
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.

This is a short story told on a big wall at Village Underground in Shoreditch, London." Its quite good.
