Jastrow’s Duck Rabbit, 1899

Duck Rabbit is an inventive activity demonstrated in the following video by David Garner, using Jastrow’s 1899 bistable image of the Duck Rabbit. You may already have seen this image in various guises and can find all kinds of re-interpretations of it through any web search. In Chapter 4 we discuss David’s use of Duck Rabbit as a means of shaking up students perceptions about what they see and have to do in certain kinds of learning situations, and how the ambiguity and uncertainty of these can be both liberating and unnerving.
