Paper Rabbit is a 6.8 feet paper mache statue made with the whole French fortune 500 mail delivery notifications (funding refusals). I recycled NO’s to finance my startup.
Made by 9 French artisans during 2 years, the sculpture is actually placed under auction sale on the www.aptedia.com website at 3 million euros start price.
The Paper Rabbit entrepreneurial symbolism is tenacity, optimism, resilience, dream, passion, ambition; audacity, creativity, risk, faith, craziness, unconsciousness ans magic which are one and every entrepreneur core values. The statue also symbolizes “failure” even if it doesn’t exist as all is about learning) without what we, entrepreneurs, couldn’t learn out of our mistakes and get stronger. I chose the magician rabbit subject as it symbolizes what we grownups spend our time running after without getting to the point it never leaved us: magic.
As I spent my time listenning to many big entrepreneurs interviews and conferences while R&Ding, I got to the point they all agree on what Paper Rabbit represents, especially Jack Ma with this video I watched 4 months after the we started to work on:

The way we actually devleop AI is focuse dtoo much on performance while intelligence is about one’s abilities to adapt his/itself to an heterogeneous environment we’re actually creating.
