Far And Away One Of The Trippiest Pools Ever Constructed

At the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan, there is an incredible exhibit that messes with the senses and our notions of perspective. Titled “The Swimming Pool,” this exhibition piece comes from Leandro Erlich, a talented Argentinian artist and designer and it produces quite the surreal effect.
 
When viewed from above, one gets the impression that there are people casually walking around in the bottom of a small swimming pool, complete with a ladder. From the underside, it feels like you’re in a pool but are actually in a room with the water suspended above you. It looks and feels like you should be in a proper pool, but the reality is one of dryness and being able to breathe. It’s quite the visual experience.
