Pictoplasma’s “The Essence of Rabit” installation project

Event, Press


The rabbit designed by tobyhk became part of the Bunny Mandala curated by Pictoplasma.

No other living creature features as heavily in contemporary character design and art as the humble hare. And just to prove it, in 2006 Pictoplasma asked internationally established and upcoming character designers, illustrators and artists to send in their versions of rabbits, bunnies, hares and everything in between. The result is a full-scale bunny overdose, with far more than 1,500 individual rabbits from 500+ international contributors. By condensing the endless variations of the rabbit motif into one ultimate system – a perfect bunny mandala – the true nature of the beast emerges: the eternal essence of rabbit.

“The Bunny Mandala Shrine” was installed at the sous-station of Projet Diligence in Nice (France), during the onedotzero Festival in London (UK), at Bios Athens (Greece) and the South Eastern Centre for Contemporary Arts (SECCA) in North Carolina (USA).
