Mysterabbit is a street art project started by designer Ji Lee, that features tiny meditating bunny sculptures placed in public spaces around the world.

According to the website:

We hope they will stop people from their daily routine and for a brief moment, make them wonder about their mysterious, newly found gift, and a small piece of the beautiful world that surrounds them.

The public is encouraged to get involved in the project. To find out if a city near you is participating in free Mysterabbit giveways, see the Mysterabbit website.

Bunny Sculptures

Monday, December 21st, 2009

“To Thine Own Self Be True” is the title of Park Ad-jong’s new solo show in South Korea. The show features sculptures of rabbits and eggs.

In an interview with the Korean Times, Park describes her choice of rabbits as a subject,


When people talk about bunnies, they think of rebirth. Bunnies make a lot of babies, so it’s about new beginnings. For me, bunnies represent new life. And this is the same for me, it’s about starting over and rebirth.

The sculptures came out of a rough time for Park, who had legal problems and trust issues with coworkers.

The exhibit runs through December 31 at the Art Link Gallery in Seoul.

Rabbit Rubbish Bins Designed by Paul Smith

Paul Smith's New London Rubbish Bin

For the “Super Contemporary” show which opened at the Design Museum in London today, fashion designer Paul Smith and 14 other artists were commissioned to “give something back” to London.

Smith focused his project on his distaste for litter. His creation is a 5-foot green rabbit holding a trash bag. When you throw garbage in the bin, the rabbit’s ears light up. Prototypes of his “New London Rubbish Bin” have been placed in Covent Gardens and Holland Park on a 4-month trial period.

I love the idea, and I hope these garbage bins end up all over the place.
