Did you know there was a secret pool in the southern part of the Mojave Desert? Well, I am most certain that you didn’t. It is a quirky project by an Austrian artist Alfredo Barsuglia. This part interactive art installation and part social experiment is named “Social Pool”.

In case you want to find and use this well hidden eleven-by-five-feet wide pool, you will need to get the GPS coordinates of its exact location from the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, which is located in West Hollywood. They will also provide you with a key to open its mobile cover. All of this actually increases the Social Pool’s exclusivity, since you can’t simply drop by.

However, the installation is open to the public. Barsuglia wanted to find out how many adventurists would travel somewhere between Joshua Tree and Apple Valley just for a little leisure. If you are one of those, you need to know that it will not be an easy task to find it, since there are no roads, no trails, no signs, no fences or anything that would help you in this mission. Furthermore, I suppose you should not leave any trace yourself and spoil someone else’s experience. [via] watch video below
