NEW YORK (AP) - A light, music and performance installation will transform a New York City armory into a reflective pool.

The piece in the Park Avenue Armory is a collaboration between classical pianist Helene Grimaud (eh-LEHN’ GREE’-moh) and Turner Prize-winning conceptual artist Douglas Gordon.

It includes 122,000 gallons of water slowly seeping through a false floor.

For 10 evenings through Dec. 21, the French pianist will perform aquatic-inspired works to the Scottish artist’s visual presentation. A player piano will be used at other times.

The work is designed to get visitors to refocus their gaze. The installation includes light beams subtly moving across the hall, highlighting different architectural elements.

Visitors can leave their rubber boots at home. Seating is around the pool or in a balcony.

The show opens Thursday and runs through Jan. 4.
