The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn’t discriminate people and doesn’t have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them.
In May 2013 the 16.5m Rubber Duck inflatable installation bobbed around Tsim Sha Tsui on a stopover on his round the world expedition/exhibition.
Hong Kong went crazy over this installation and all over the city you could buy replicas of ‘the’ rubber duck. Goodness knows how many were sold.
Can this giant friendly, floating Rubber Duck really relieve mondial tensions? Or is it just another catalyst for encouraging mondial pollution?
On the beach today at Lung Kwu Tan on a far flung corner of Hong Kong we picked up 5 yellow ducks! I wonder how many yellow ducks are still floating around Hong Kong.
