All those who walked in a car or bus were surprised by the thousands Penguins in Italy Place.
They surround the Obelisk to Balmaceda, right in the center of Av. Providencia, and migrated to Santiago to give a message at noon on Thursday 6.
And so it was. The Collective Bla, the one that is dedicated to the urban interventions and that does the Made in House Festival – the one that installed an enormous cap in the Tower of Ente, put them in the place to send a message on the medium education.
It was commissioned by the TV Channel 13C to advertise the effects of climate change. And for the same reason they have chosen these southern marine birds that are at risk of extinction.
The penguins are made in a real scale and all the material used in its construction is recycled: 1300 plastic bottles and more than four tons of diary.
Eye, until Saturday you can go to take a photo with these animals. In fact, this day will give these sculptures to everyone who wants to take one home.
