Down Under

For anyone who ever dreamed of having an indoor pool, check this out:
Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich has created an installation at the 21st Century Museum of Art in Kanazawa, Japan that gives visitors the experience of being in a pool without actually being in a pool.
Erlich built a room that simulates the inside of a below ground pool, right down to the blue painted walls and aluminum ladder.
Above, a skylight of sorts holds the few inches of water needed to create the dancing shadows and reflections that complete the underwater experience.

How cool is that?

That is awesome and a little bit eerie at the same time. I'd like to visit it.
