Summary

Location: Waterview Walk, Docklands

Melbourne artist Emily Floyd’s 'Signature Work' is a playful addition to the public art collection at Docklands. Resembling an abstracted toy rabbit, it is intended to amuse and confound passers-by. Standing nearly four metres high and coated in black polyurethane paint, the aluminium-plate sculpture is also reminiscent of futuristic creations such as Darth Vader, or the menacing rabbit figure in the film 'Donny Darko'. Planted in the urban landscape of Docklands, this giant rabbit has a presence that is both cute and unsettling as it looms over the viewer.
