This pool owes its alienating effect to the fact that it’s actually only a baby pool with hardly 10 cm of water on a transparent floor under which people can walk by. It is a work of art by Leandro Erlich in the Museum of Contemporary Art at Kanazawa.

I used the photo in my film Still Dance of Life in Time and Space as an allusion – with a wink – to the evolutionary theory that all life has originated in the waters of the oceans.
