Storyline

LEVITATED MASS is the story of a rock star; the artist behind the sensation; a $10 million, 22-city tour; and the international media storm that ensued--but not in the way you might expect. Prominently displayed outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, renowned and reclusive land artist Michael Heizer's "Levitated Mass" gained worldwide recognition during its installation in 2012. Over the course of 10 nights, a 340-ton solid granite boulder crawled through Southern California neighborhoods on a 294-foot-long, 206-wheeled trailer, drawing hundreds of camera crews and cell phone shooters alike to document its journey. Tens of thousands of people came out to watch the megalith travel through their communities to its final resting place over a 456-foot-long negative space formed by a concrete slot. "Levitated Mass" is one of the only pieces of art in recent history to inspire such a reaction in pop culture, bringing together the art community, public officials, and the general ...

Quite a surprise
8 March 2014 | by marklear-1See all my reviews

Knowing nothing about Michael Heizer (I am Australian) or his sculptures/public art installations, I did not know what to expect from this 90 minute documentary about the installation at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, but it was a great "ride" along the road (literally, in much of the film) to see how the idea was made, when it was started, other works he had done, including some great "holes", mostly in USA. The cinematography was really good, and varied between landscape scale and personal interviews. The directing and the narrating were first class, and we almost felt that we were part of the journey even though we are a long way away. Particularly enjoyable were the encounters with lots and lots of friendly or bemused locals along the way. If you like feature length documentaries, I think this one is a big screen documentary, that's for sure.
