THE PERPLEXING POOL
In one of the courtyards of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa, is a swimming pool framed by a limestone deck. It's an unusual place for a swimming pool, but things get even stranger when one moves in closer. Under the shimmering water, people appear to be walking on the bottom. How is this possible?
The Swimming Pool was designed by Buenos Aires artist Leandro Erlich in 2004. The truth is that the water is only ten centimeters deep and covers a layer of glass underneath which is a room that visitors can mill around in.
