Fake Swimming Pool in Japan

Fake Swimming Pool in Japan

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, Japan. The fake swimming pool was made by Buenos Aires artist Leandro Erlich in 2004. The installation provides an amusing experience for the visitors.

A deep pit with blue walls is overlaid with a transparent glass, which is covered with a thin layer of water. The effect is overwhelming: it really looks like a swimming pool, filled with water. However, the visitors do not even get wet!
