In 2005, a group of artists in Italy built a giant 200-foot-long plushie rabbit in the countryside, and just left it there. It’s been there ever since.
These pics don’t illustrate the fact that it has its plushie guts spilling out of the side
or that it looks like something out of Silent Hill now
@wilburwhateley This seems like its up your alley.
Ha. It is, in fact, and I’m glad to see that it’s circulating with an updated photo…although it’s still missing the collective’s name: Gelitin (it’s in the source article, however). I went looking for info on them a couple of years ago. I think it’s a cool and odd project—which, in my books, means great, but imagining how it smells continues to shift the whole thing firmly into the ‘nuh uh’ category for me when it comes to wanting to see things first-hand. Maybe that’s shallow, but it is what it is. 🙂 Note, if anybody visits the group’s site, most of it is sfw, although there are a couple of projects that definitely are not. Here’s a link directly to more on
Hase / Rabbit / Coniglio. The “installation” (?) is dated at 2005; here’s a sort of planning drawing from the site from 2000:
