Water Falls at the Hunterdon Art Museum

Posted on: Saturday, January 16, 2010


Water Falls is a site-specific interactive installation currently on view at the historic Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, New Jersey along the Passaic River.


Artist Michelle Vitale Loughlin was inspired by the 200-foot long waterfall adjacent to the Hunterdon Art Museum, and in turn made gestural drawings that she translated into three-dimensional knitted forms using silver synthetic fibers and an industrial knitting machine. Stitched together, these cascading forms transform the inside of the Museum's River Gallery and mimic the action of the water outside.




"With this project, Loughlin aims to probe an iconic image - one associated with the unspoiled and pristine aspects of Nature, and present a more honest portrayal. By stitching a variety of found objects into the flowing forms of Water Falls, i.e. water bottles, latex gloves, and coffee cup lids, Loughlin references the detritus that is an all too familiar element of most natural settings, and as the artist aptly points out, the man-made and the natural are no longer separate."

*Water Falls is on view through Sunday, January 24, 2010
