As I’ve said three times already, during the weeks leading up to Easter, the folks at Faberge set up a “Big Egg Hunt” all around the city and these works of art were not only fantastic to look at, but thanks to a downloadable app and a QR code, the folks in our fair Metropolis could scan the egg upon discovery and mark it as collected in their account. If they were the first to find an egg there would be prizes as well and that is pretty cool right? The exhibit ran all around the city from April 1st – 17th.
On April 18th, all of the eggs were gathered up and set up as a massive outdoor display in Rockefeller Center and since I was not able to hunt down any of the eggs in their original location figured that it would make a fun blog post for you to enjoy here on the Piercing Ken site. The way I did this was to shoot a photograph of each egg, and I apologize for not getting their names or the designer. This is the fourth and final chapter of my series that focused on this exhibit. Enjoy.
That’s it for the eggs that I photographed and while I learned afterward that there were about 250 of them, I only got as far as 185 and as one of the shots of the surroundings revealed to me, I would miss one section by not paying attention. In my defense shooting all these eggs for the time that it took had fried a little bit of the creative energies. Remember I was at the Auto Show earlier in the day as well so I was super tired. Anyway, here are some area shots.
This was a lot of fun to present to you and I hope that I didn’t leave you fried, scrambled or hard boiled when it all came down to it 🙂 Oh come on, you didn’t think that I would pass up on another chance to stick an egg joke in there did you? I really enjoyed this presentation and it left me with an even larger appreciation for my city where something cool is happening at every single turn.
