This ‘public swimming pool‘ was built with the help of local people, aiming to sensitize the community in reflection on the possible uses of this space in the future, given that the installation wants to remember and represent a demolished pool in 2008. The collected transparent containers, together with the inhabitants of the Bairro La Latina, were washed and then adapted and arranged randomly and filled with colored water and small blue light, suggesting the idea of a pool of 6 feet by 4 . The installation was illuminating the square until the early hours of the morning.
