Swimming Pool by Leandro Erlich

This is quite an old piece of work from Leandro Erlich, the artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina. In one the Museum’s courtyards in Japan, the pool appears to be filled deep with water, however, a layer of water only some 10 centimetres deep is suspended over transparent glass. Thus creating the effect of a full swimming pool, throwing off the humans perception of what is and what isn’t there. Below is a space where viewers can enter and inspect from below, and obviously from above people can view too, so we are faced with some sort of mirage or other worldly experience. You will have to agree that this was a really smart exhibitional idea, one that has took him very far. Have a look through his other recent projects at his website below, really creative stuff going on.
