Florentijn Hofman’s Rubber Duck

“We’re one family, and all the waters in the world are our global bathtub”. A simple, but nonetheless sweet concept for an artwork. Florentijn Hofman’s giant rubber duck reminded me of the Friendly Floatees incident of 1991, the subject of Donovan Hohn’s book, Moby Duck: The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea and of the Beachcombers, Oceanographers, Environmentalists, and Fools, Including the Author, Who Went in Search of them.
