when you had nothing else to give
you still gave him love

These awesome illuminated inflatable white rabbits are the work of Australian artist Amanda Parer for an installation entitled Intrude. In May 2014 the giant glowing bunnies were installed at the Vivid Festival of Light Sydney and next month they’ll be part of the Junction Arts Festival in Launceston, Tasmania.

Parer’s enormous and radiant rabbits, which stand 7 meters (~23 feet) tall, were created as a twofold response to the animals’ common occurrence in Australian fairytales as well as their invasive presence throughout Australia:

"These animals first travelled to Australia on the ships of the First Fleet and were brought ashore in cages in January 1788. These adaptable creatures quickly made themselves at home and eventually spread to almost every corner of the land. An Australian contradiction, Intrude represents the fairy-tale animals of our childhood – a furry innocence, frolicking through idyllic fields, while revealing their more serious and large-scale effect on the environment.”

30 Day Anime Challenge - Days 25-27

25. Anime character you feel you are most like (or wish you were like)?
More of a manga character than an anime character (although the manga was adapted into an OVA), but I feel like I am/was rather similiar to Miyamura from Horimiya. Not that I secretly have ten piercings or tattoos, but the idea of having a separate school and home life, as well as generally being an introvert and ditz.

26. An anime scene that made you cry?
Hikaru no Go episode 70, about half-way through. The last quarter of that show in general, really, and the first three-quarters in hindsight. Just. Hikago.

27. Recommend one anime that most people may not have seen.
I don’t think I’ve watched many unpopular anime? I suppose I’ll recommend Kobato, even though it’s by CLAMP and everyone knows CLAMP, because it’s just so sweet and heartwarming and actually has something resembling a conclusion. For really obscure anime, I guess I’ll trumpet Chuuka Ichiban if you’re into cooking (and over-the-top reactions to cooking).
