'Pool of Pleasure' dives into the hedonistic emotions of self-pleasure and satisfaction. What may seem egocentric and selfish at first, leads us to consider the fundamental need for times of pleasure and enjoyment. 'Pool of Pleasure' identifies with notions of freedom - the antithesis of modern day stress and anxiety. The swimming pool and pool toys act as symbols of leisure in an environment of escapism.
