Swim In 1,000,000 Recyclable Plastic Balls At Installation In Museum In Washington

ADVERTISEMENT

The National Building Museum in Washington has become the unlikely home of an enormous ocean of one million plastic bubbles and a plastic beach open to visitors who want to hop in for a truly bizarre experience.

The beach, designed by an experimental design firm named Snarkitecture, has a sloping all-white beach-front and mirrors to expand the space twofold, and there’s even a concession stand! According to the organizers, the plastic bubbles are recyclable.

The National Building Museum hosts fun, interactive installations every year – in 2014, they had an enormous maze that visitors could navigate and get lost in. This awesome plastic beach will be open through September 7th, so be sure to swing by if you’re ever in Washington, D.C.!

There is a beast with heart of cold stone that dashes like lightning, shreds flesh from bone. // Bewitched by this beast, I fell to my knees. My mouth babbled madness and mumbled soft pleas. // I stared down the ravenous, gnashing dark maw of a cute cuddly kitten with yarn in its paw

That's what it must feel like to swim within the giant plastic islands in the ocean.
