Fishtank Friday: People Tank

Fishtank Friday: People Tank

By Evan Ackerman

Oops. It’s kinda Saturday, isn’t it? Forgive me, fanatical fans of Fishtank Friday, for foregoing your frequent fishy fun. I blame GDC. Let’s all just pretend that today is still Friday, or if you prefer, this can be the first (but almost certainly not the last) Fishtank Saturday. On with it!

People Tank

Ever wanted to feel like a fish? Yeah, you can always go swimming or diving or something, but you’re still in a foreign environment. How can you be underwater without being underwater? Simple: just be under (space) water. This people tank can be found at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. The water is held up by a giant sheet of plexiglass, and you can walk around underneath, under the water. The ladder provides a nice touch, too. A picture from the top of the pool, after the jump.

    Wait till a poor uninformed security guard changed into his birthday suit and decided to dive in during his night shift!

    I saw an art installation in Seattle that was kinda like this, except there were photos of happy children under the Plexiglas and you walked on top of them. There were sound effects. Anybody else see that?

    That’s awesome! I wonder how deep the water on top is.

    I wonder what happens when pesky kids start peeing in *this* pool… : P
