The Pool is part of the 2021 'River of Light' programme. For full details of this years River of Light, visit the dedicated page.

The Pool (2008) is an interactive light sculpture designed to activate public space and promote community engagement. Using mesh-network technology and custom code, visitors can activate platforms that respond to touch—encouraging participation in an ever-changing composition.

The Pool has traveled to over sixty exhibition venues in more than twenty countries in the past thirteen years, including: Abu Dhabi, Beijing, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Lisbon, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York City, Prague, Shanghai, Sydney, Taipei, and now Liverpool..

The Pool is a giant field of light comprised of over 100 interactive LED platforms that change color and swirl with light when you walk on them.
