This crazy art installation by Argentine artist Leandro Erlich, completely trips you out - you think these people are standing underwater, and you start wondering, weights on their feet? Do they have breathing tubes? WTF? Then you realize it's a brilliantly crafted illusion.

The installation is currently at the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in New York.
Here's a snippet from Artabase.net about it:
"Erlich has constructed a full-size pool, complete with all its trappings, including a deck and a ladder. When approached from the first floor, visitors are confronted with a surreal scene: people, fully clothed, can be seen standing, walking, and breathing beneath the surface of the water. It is only when visitors enter the Duplex gallery from the basement that they recognize that the pool is empty, its construction a visual trick fashioned by the artist. A large, continuous piece of acrylic spans the pool and suspends water above it, creating the illusion of a standard swimming pool that is both disorienting and humorous."

I've been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

My coder is trying to convince me to move to

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
various websites for about a year and am nervous about switching
to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A lot of loan applications by individuals with bad credit are rejected by
lending institutions. With a bad credit payday loan it is created for people with bad credit and almost everybody is approved.

Hi there.
I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe
guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
My site covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.

I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
