The swimming pool
Could you live inside a swimming pool? The exhibit, made by Leandro Elrich, in one of the courtyards at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art looks like it is a deep pool filled with water but in truth, the water is only 10 cm deep and atop transparent glass. Museum visitors can view the pool from above and from inside the pool. To those above looking down on those below, it would appear that the persons below are inside the water, walking about. To those below, the people above appear through a shimmer of water. Either way, it’s like seeing the world through a fish’s eyes.
Live in a fish bowl? Hmmm…not likely. Visit for a spell? Most certainly. Blub Blub.
