See, now you got me started! 😉 This permanent installation by Leandro Erlich can be seen at The 21st Century Museum Of Art Of Kanasawa.I love it, the view from beneath the surface is one of my favourite things when i´m swimming. I love how it distorts the image, turning the real world outside into something magical.
This installation makes it possible to experience this without getting wet at all. And there is more. People can look UP trough the water and DOWN to the people in the pool. So you have essentially ordinary people staring fascinated at each other. They probably wouldn´t look twice if they saw each other on the street, but Erlich´s installation makes them part of the artwork.
