The Swimming Pool by Leandro Erlich in Kanazawa Japan

October 23, 2012

Whenever people act all normal in an abnormal environment it always looks sinister. Enter Leandro Erlich’s Swimming Pool at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. Creepy. But since it’s not Halloween just yet, there’s really no need for us to make this thing spooky, especially when it’s quite cool! Visitors can enter the installation and look out from within. They can also view the pool and everyone inside it from above by visiting the courtyard surrounding this exhibit.

The illusion that the swimming pool is full of water is created by the aqua-marine colored walls and the 10 centimeters of water that’s on the “roof” of the pool. Regardless of how real this illusion looks, you should avoid acting on your urge to dive in.
