Fat Monkey

I love art that just makes me smile.  This site specific installation for Sao Paolo’s event Pixelshow by Florentijn Hofman makes me grin like crazy.

Flortentijn is the same artist responsible for the giant inflated rubber duckie that was first presented in Amsterdam in 2007 and most recently shown in Osaka in 2009.

I really love that someone went to the trouble to put this in the world.  There should be more stuff like this.  We spend so much of our time and energy focusing on what is wrong with the world, it is really nice to see something that has no other function than to make people happy.
