Rubber ducky you're the one...

This giant rubber duck is just one of many interesting installations by Florentijn Hofman, including a bunny, a reclining muskrat, some fish out of water and a pig in a bit of a poke

The rubber ducky is wonderful. More art should be like this.

The muskrat made me think of a Furry convention populated by Transformers.

Oh, and I liked the duck.

Thanks, loved this.

I'm partial to Paal 5, myself.

The underlit bunny (3/12) is wonderfully evil. It looks like it's walking across the quad to smash something. Hello Tokyo.

That's a big duck. Seriously, when you see it with the boats in the foreground, you realize that, holy shit, that is a big duck.

I must have it.

I will fill it with helium and use it as everyday transportation.

Artists who do the same thing time and again bore me. One giant rubber duckie is brilliant. Repeating it in rabbit and pig versions is trite.

Hey, Utrecht represent! That's our Oudegracht (medieval canal).
I'm sorry that you guys can't read the accompanying text. The Waterlinie fortress f.i. is hard to understand without the text.
I love our old fortresses.
