So the thing about the duck…
Is…
Mr. Florentijn Hofman, a Dutch artist, basically created the duck.
and he is known for making very large projects with animals.
And he tends to do them with abstract point of view.
One of the best ones… I think he did was the…
The giant monkey in Brazil,
where he used Brazilian flip-flops
of many different colors
which sort of makes the rubber duck, in my opinion, his least impressive art
you know he didn’t even change the anything from the rubber duck that I remember seeing at my bathtub as a child.
He just made it bigger.
and Taiwan got hold of it recently in Kaoshiung City.
and… it just exploded, man. Like everybody is becoming a part of it. I think it’s a big fad.
It sort of reveals a sense of 'followship'.
I don’t even know if people know that the duck was created by a Dutch artist name you know Florentijn Hofman or that
he does other works of art.
That’s what I wonder with this… sense of 'followship'.
You know is art people in Taiwan, or in the rest of the world for that matter.
Just following it because it’s the new cool fad.
I understand the duck is cute and I know that having a giant duck in the ocean is sort of like…
making the ocean our bathtub, and it kind of makes us all children again, you know.
But what I don’t understand is the 'duck mania'. I don’t understand why everyone has such a craze for the duck.
But that’s just me.
I do wonder if there are a lot of people who are just going with it just because that’s what everyone else does.
Just part of the social dynamics of society.
You know a lot of people want to be a part of something bigger.
So whatever you guys think,
we want to hear from you. Please leave your comments below.
Let us know what’s up!
