Duck Inflated

You may like to know that Florentijn Hofman's Giant Inflatable Rubber Duck, which burst in the Taiwanese port at Keelung on New Year's Eve (CLICK), has been repaired and is once again attracting crowds of onlookers (CLICK). Launched in 2009, the Rubber Duck must be the most surprising public art success story in the last few years. It has travelled around the world and has attracted publicity and admiring crowds wherever it goes. It has even received praise from the Chinese government! Hofman describes his rubber duck as apolitical, "soft, friendly and suitable for all ages" (CLICK).
