Flying Lessons, 1993
Flying Lessons, 1993, Installation view, Santa Monica Museum of Art

Aldrich’s installation interwove visual images, forms, and media to create a ”flight school” addressing real, imaginary, and desired experiences of flying. Flying Lessons combined themes of bird flight or the ”departure” of endangered bird species, human flight through technology, and supernatural flight embodied in notions of angelic beings in a multimedia installation that incorporated painting, sculpture, video, and music.
