Leandro Erlich - Swimming Pool

Leandro Erlich, Argentina b.1973

Swimming pool 2010 Timber, swimming pool ladder, plexiglass an water

“An extraordinary and visually confounding installation…Erlich constructed a full-size pool, complete with all its trappings, including a deck and a ladder.

When approached from the first floor, visitors were confronted with a surreal scene: people, fully clothed, can be seen standing, walking, and breathing beneath the surface of the water.

It was only when visitors entered the Duplex gallery from the basement that they recognized that the pool is empty, its construction a visual trick fashioned by the artist.

A large, continuous piece of acrylic spanned the pool and suspended water above it, creating the illusion of a standard swimming pool that was both disorienting and humorous.”

LOTR observations ( obvious spoilers)

After years of being a subpar fantasy fan, I’ve finally gotten around to listening to Fellowship of the Ring on audiobook because I have a very boring summer job and a kindle unlimited free trial. I’ve watched the movies, but it’s been long enough that I only remember vague important plot points. I have very mixed feelings, many of which have been affected by recently finishing ASOIAF.  In no particular order:

Oldest known picture of a sneeze – 1902

im laughin so fuckin hard
can you imagine how upset literally everybody in that room musta been after this happened
it took a long time to take photographs back then i bet there was a collective of nothin but sighing echoing through the room


It didn’t take a long time to take photographs by 1902, though. By then camera speed was enough to capture moving objects without horrid blur (given enough light, anyway.) Sneezes last for just seconds so if they took a long time this picture wouldn’t have been captured at all, you’d just have a blur all over her face (and possibly body, too, since she seems to have bent forward with the sneeze.)

I never speak of Agatha because, even at the thought of her name, I’m unable to control my emotions… You see, she saved us.
