Rabbits have become a seriously invasive species since they were introduced in Australia in the 1780s. And now the gigantic, glowing white rabbits
that make up Australian artist Amanda Parer’s Intrude—pictured here in Sydney (above) and at San Francisco’s Civic Center (left)—are popping up in festivals and lawns around the world.
Standing at about 23 feet high, Parer’s illuminated, inflated nylon rabbits dominate the landscapes where they’re shown. According to Parer, the size of the sculptures references “the elephant in the room”: our ability to ignore human environmental impact despite how big it is.
