swimming pool

27Feb13

Here’s a fun project. Made for the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan, here is essentially a fake swimming pool. Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich is the brains behind this piece. Two sheets of acrylic glass are placed a foot apart and filled with water atop a would-be swimming pool. On the top sheet, 4-5 inches of water were added so it gives the allusion of being an actual pool. I like the underwater scene the most; looking up at the spectators on the other side through the water seems like a fun experience, not having to hold your breath. The title of the work? The Swimming Pool. via.
