Life Mirrors Seinfeld: Alfredo Barsuglia’s Forbidden Swimming Pool Is Somewhere In The Mojave Desert
LOOKING to cool your heels on Route 66? Well, if you can find Alfredo Barsuglia’s swimming pool. It’s somewhere in the Mojave desert.
And it’s clean. The 11 x 5ft pool is fitted with a solar-powered filter and chlorination system.
You need to pick up the keys at LA’s MAK Center for Art and Architecture, where you’ll also bne given the GPS coordinates to help you find the thing. You have just 24 hours to find the pool and return the key.
Barsuglia tells the LA Times his pool has a message. It “is about the effort people make to reach a luxury good… often, people will have a pool, but they don’t even get into it. They just like to show that they have it. It shows they don’t have to think about water.”
Does he have any tiups on finding the pool?
“This requires a hike through the desert, which, depending on where you happen to leave your car, could be anywhere from 20 minutes to more than an hour.”
In 2008, Barsuglia hid the “Oderfla Beauty Resort” in a dune in the desert’s Lucerne Valley.
It reminds us of those legendary New York nightclubs that popped up and then vanished. If you had to ask where it is, darling, you had no need to be there:
