"Everyday, we spend our time constantly doing things: Going from one place to another, working, shopping, checking our phones, thinking about the past and worrying about the future. We rarely stop and enjoy the moment. In doing so, we end up missing the beautiful moments of life that go by us without ever being noticed."
Designer Ji Lee and his team have started a touching street project Mysterabbit to disrupt this cycle. He has created 10,000 tiny sweet bunny statues, in the shape of a meditating rabbit, and placed them in public spaces.
"We hope they (Mysterabbits) 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 team writes on its website.
Lee and his team created these tiny bunnies with the help of a 3D printer, and they are giving away Mysterabbits for free so anyone can participate in the project. You can sign up to receive ten free Mysterabbits or download a blueprint for the tiny bunnies and make as many bunnies as you want if you have a 3D printer. You can then place them in public space in your city.
Check out more information and how to participate in the Mysterabbit project here.

Too bad the message is so confusing! They talk about "missing the beautiful moments in life" yet they are creating chaos by not paying the shop they worked with for a year to create the Bunny.

While I appreciate the sentiment, this is basically littering, you know.

A meditating cross-legged rabbit holding a gem? Either being cultish looking or ironic.
