Fake Swimming Pool by Leandro Erlich

    In one of the courtyards of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, is a swimming pool framed by a limestone deck. When seen from the deck, the pool appears to be filled with deep, shimmering water. In fact, however, a layer of water only some 10 centimeters deep is suspended over transparent glass. Below the glass is an empty space with aquamarine walls that viewers can enter.

    The Swimming Pool was designed by Buenos Aires artist Leandro Erlich in 2004.
