My TWEETing HEART
Anonymously Yours - BLOG

 

I am undeniably a romanticist, a dreamer, an idealist, and I tell myself sometimes that I should stop. I am in love with love; a constant feeling in my heart. I've come to realize that in all honesty, I don't think I'll ever really stop loving--as Love is such a beautiful thing-[con'td...]

SkippyHeart ROCKIN' and WALKIN' in L.A.

We've been having triple digits, crazy hot weather for almost two months now...but today got a bit of a break of 10 degrees lower...a good day to re-visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to check out the much talked about newest art attraction, Levitated Mass.

Levitated Mass by artist Michael Heizer is composed of a 456-foot-long slot constructed on LACMA's campus, over which is placed a 340-ton granite megalith. The slot gradually descends to fifteen feet in depth, running underneath the boulder. As with other works by the artist, such as Double Negative (1969), the monumental negative form is key to the experience of the artwork.

Heizer conceived of the artwork in 1969; a drawing of the work is in the collection of the Staatliche Museen ze Berlin. The artist discovered an appropriate boulder only decades later, in Riverside County, California. The boulder is one component of the artwork, as is the 456-foot-long slot beneath it and the surrounding environment.

Taken whole, Levitated Mass speaks to the expanse of art history, from ancient traditions of creating artworks from megalithic stone, to modern forms of abstract geometries and cutting-edge feats of engineering. - Source:  LACMA

A majestic piece of art indeed...

The temperature stated to heat up again by mid-afternoon, so back at home I go...
