Day Seven: Rubber Ducky

Today’s project was small and simple – I put rubber ducks in the fountains of Civic.

There were a couple of reasons I went for such a low key project today – the last few days have been hectic, and I needed a little bit of a breather; and I wanted to experiement with setting up an entirely non-interactive event. This is interesting for me – I don’t really have any idea how to judge if it was a success or not. I haven’t had any feedback from people who actually saw the ducks, as I left them to their own devices and didn’t stay to monitor people’s reactions. Responses to the photographs have been quite positive, though.

There will be more projects along these lines over the next two weeks. They’re a nice break from the intensity of the bigger projects; and I enjoy the idea of making more discret works – cute little suprises for people who are paying attention to the world around them.

And I’d just like to note: the soap bubbles in the fountains were nothing to do with me – it was just a happy coindicence when I showed up this morning with my duckies.

Lots more photos up on today’s set on the Flickr.
