The Rubber Duck and our childhood nostalgia

Rubber Duck in Sidney
When searching for the post to write today, the rubber duck was a nice shock, but on its sustainability? In the words of its creator on his work: "The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it does not discriminate people and does not have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial Tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages! "

TheRubber Duck is a project by the dutch artist Florentijn Hofman. It arrived at 2pm on the 5th January 2013 at the Darling harbour, Sydney (AUS), for the Sidney Festival. Created from PVC, a pontoon boat, and a generator, the high rubber duck is the latest incarnation of Hofman’s humoristic piece which has also graced the waters of various places around the world since 2007: Osaka, Auckland, Sao Paolo, Amsterdam, floats from city to city along the Loire river in France etc.

Measuring 15 meters high and 18 meters wide, the oversized friendly creature’s mission is to provide a joyful interruption to people’s daily routines. People from all over the world connect the rubber toy with their childhood memories and are brought up with positive sensations.
