Simulated swimming pool

The first thing out of the boy's mouth was "Can we do that?"

Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich created this installation, simply called The Swimming Pool, for The 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. A 10cm layer of water over a piece of glass separates above from below. It must be a pretty serious piece of glass; some back-of-the-envelope math based on the published dimensions gives 1,100 kg (2400 lbs) of water that it has to support. Plus its own weight.

  3. Alessandra,

    Your swimming pool is unlike any I have ever seen in my thirty years in the swimming pool business. What an incredibly unique perspective to share with us...thank you for sharing your talents...

  4. Kent,
    I wish I could take credit for building it but alas my talents lie in the sewing world. The amazing artist is Leandro Erlich and if you follow the links above you can learn more about him.
