最近在Facebook被瘋傳得最多的,應該是這隻將於5月2號正式亮相於海港城的Yellow Rubber Duck。你想知道鴨鴨如何誕生嗎?來自荷蘭的巨型鴨鴨主腦人Florentijn Hotfman今日親身拆解巨鴨的秘密,鴨鴨高16.5米,重超過600公斤,是亞洲tour之中最大的一隻,由體積到製作過程均充滿有趣的小知識!




1.膠鴨是怎樣煉成的?
橡皮鴨身由200塊巨型膠片組成,每一塊裁片都是由Florentijn親自設計。

2.它是密封的嗎?
尾部有拉鏈位,巨鴨的心藏地帶是浮台,供工作人員入內部為橡皮鴨做body check。

3.如何保持脹卜卜的體積?
為了令鴨鴨長期保持脹卜卜的狀態,需在浮台上裝上風機,定期為鴨鴨打上真氣。

4.為何巨鴨在海上飄浮依然能保持姿態?
全因底部有一個直徑超過13米的浮床,讓它可以從容不迫地浮起來。

5.不怕風吹雨打嗎?
巨鴨底部會連接3個、每個重3噸的石躉固定鴨身,不怕被風浪吹走。

6.何來有電源供應?
為了確保在海上都有充足的電源,鴨身內的風機會有一條防水電纜將岸上的電源經海底連接過來。



維港當日便會變成巨鴨的大浴場,另外,這次展覽亦有精品發售,包括首批1,000隻印有霍夫曼簽名及紀念版編號的香港限定版沐浴「橡皮鴨」(港元$80)、T-shirt (港元$250)、明信片(港元$60一套,每套10張)及派對套裝 (港元$20一套,每套包括Cap帽和扉子)。所獲收益將扣除成本,全數撥捐「心情行動慈善基金」作慈善用途。海港城 x「橡皮鴨」限量版精品將會於5月2日起在「海港城‧美術館」發售 。

【拖住女朋友行年宵,街邊食宵夜,再食甜品做結尾…】   每到新年,就慘過間碟被人捉去問話。呢幾日開始同女朋友各方親戚食團年飯,我懷疑全地球「親戚」都係虐待狂,我細細就每年都被逼玩「叫親戚遊戲」。老豆一聲令下,我就要成個族譜背返晒出黎,有幾個阿姨硬係唔記得點叫…   喂大佬啊一年先見一次,我點會記得你點稱呼啊。年年我生日,佢唔係送百佳現金卷就係書局現金卷畀我…如果當年你肯落少少本,買玩具或者遊戲機,我連你英文名畀乜都叫得出啦!   所以咁多年黎,見到呢幾個阿姨,我通常只會叫Hi Auntie!既親切又有禮貌。不過,由我帶住女朋友去食團年飯同拜年開始,就年年都會問同一堆問題。 無錯!係同一堆!答完下一年再問…下一年再問…下一年再問!   「你點識你女朋友?」 「用精靈球…」   「幾時結婚?」 「前年結咗啦,無請你啫。」   「幾時生返個畀我玩吓先?」 「我屋企有隻狗,成日想人同佢玩。」   「而家返咩工啊?仲係嗰份啊?」 「教書。」 「吓?無聽你講過嘅?教邊科?」 「黑魔法防禦術。」   終於接受完盤問,食完餐團年飯,例牌動作梗係要同女朋友去行年宵啦。女朋友唔知點解好鍾意行年宵,就算每一年都係入場然後被人龍逼逼逼逼到去出口…而每一次都係空手而回。 不過行年宵都係講求氣氛,入到去拖實佢隻手唔好走失,逼人時幫佢防止咸豬手,一邊行一邊傾吓計咁,其實都幾開心。   個幾鐘終於逼到去出口,今年都係無買到嘢。 「去食甜品吖!」女朋友唔知點解一有節日就想食湯圓,佢話要團團圓圓。就連中秋節都會食,我問點解?佢話唔鍾意食月餅,所以要食湯圓…   「但我行到好肚餓,食宵夜啦。」 「食完宵夜!再食甜品!」女朋友好堅持。   食宵夜同甜品亦係每年指定動作,通常呢段日子周街都係小販,成條街都係人,個氣氛特別好,所以價錢貴少少都無所謂,買碗碗仔翅,戳串魚蛋(豬大腸已被小豆禁止),有埋雞翼尖就prefect池!   不過!今年就有少少特別… 年宵外面嘅小販區畀人圍晒鐵欄…一檔小販都無。我同女朋友行近去睇,周圍都唔見有小販,亦聞唔到小販獨有嗰陣好多食物混雜出黎嘅香味。   「點解無晒嘅?」女朋友問我。 「唔知啊,我見新聞好多地區都封晒,仲話會執得好嚴,所以無小販夠膽擺檔。」   無辦法之下,只好提早去食甜品,食完送佢返屋企,個心硬係好似差緊啲嘢咁,但又講唔出差乜。   雖然過年唔一定要有咩特別,兩個人行完年宵,食宵夜,食甜品,做晒所有指定動作,個感覺就好似「兩個人渡過咗一年」。   「以後每年我哋做晒呢套指定動作㗎!」女朋友每年都會講一次。 「放心啦,同妳去過嘅地方都充滿回憶,同其他人再去唔返,妳個地盤都幾乎霸晒成個香港。」 「不過今年已經無咗小販啦…」 「無辦法啦,不過我諗下年都唔會再有…」   雖然咁講有啲絕望,不過係真心話。有時啲嘢你禁止一次、兩次,就算將來開放返,都未必有返以前成條街逼滿小販嘅氣氛,呢啲就係集體回憶。   送女朋友搭巴士返屋企,望住窗外街景,我終於知道差緊啲乜,香港好似越來越少回憶,同埋人情味。 成日聽老人家話,香港新年無以前咁有氣氛, 相信到我將來有小朋友,我都會同佢講同一番說話。   ---------------- 《無病你呻乜嘢吟》 前幾日落晒書局,但聽聞清得好快。   14/2(日)簽書會: 3:00pm 鑽石山荷里活廣場3樓三聯書店 即場買本《無病你呻乜嘢吟》 買咗就帶黎,黎到會送獨藍特製繪馬牌。   ig:BlueGodZi 專頁:http://www.facebook.com/BlueGodZi
