What’s up with giant rubber ducks?

Giant shuttlecocks, rubber ducks, and balloon dogs are all great examples of art that can bring a smile to our face. They’re also great examples of how art can be used to add levity and fun to our lives.

I refer to the shuttlecocks of Claes Oldenburg, the rubber ducks of Florentijn Hofman, and the balloon dog of Jeff Koons.
