Fake Swimming Pool by Leandro Erlich in Kanazawa

One of the most surprising works of art at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa is a “fake” swimming pool. The pool has just 10 cm of water over a glass surface, it looks like a normal swimming pool until you realize that it is hollow and you can go inside and walk under the water! It has been built in a Japanese museum, but it is an original idea by Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich.

    Oh, so you went to my Japanese hometown ? Hope you liked it there ! Did you have any nice fish/crab/kaisendon people in Ishikawa are proud of? Went to any other places ?
    Ishikawa is the placed where I lived the most since I came to Japan, 4 years plus lots of week-ends, and I always get this nostalgia (懐かしい) feeling every time i go there.
