Ducks, Ducks for Everyone

You can’t stop Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman and the mighty ducks. He has traveled to 14 cities around the globe and inserted his artistic renditions on the childhood classic, the rubber ducky. His aim is to “spread joy around the world”. Each duck is made up of hundreds of pieces of PVC and comes with an internal electric fan so that the body of the sculptured animal can inflate and deflate at any given moment.

Feast your eyes on some giant urban duck fixtures.
