The Aldrich Museum

Ridgefield, Connecticut


For “River Half Empty” a corridor has been
created that supports a ceiling of glass
panels over which water gently streams.
At the end of the corridor, the water falls
off into a seven-foot-tall tank. The sound of
water, which can be heard through the
museum, and the movement overhead
evoke the associations as pulsing life or
flagrant waste. Every sense is stimulated by
the sound, smell, humidity, motion, and
flickering light of the installation.
