Summary
Doug Pray's film "Levitated Mass" is the story of a 340-ton granite boulder that was moved from a quarry in Riverside to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and mounted atop the walls of a gigantic slot in the earth. The massive artwork, titled "Levitated Mass," is the latest 'land sculpture' by one of America's most exciting artists, Michael Heizer, whose work brings the entire expanse of art history to life - from ancient traditions of megalithic stones to modern forms of abstract geometries and cutting-edge feats of engineering. The boulder's 105-mile journey from quarry to museum attracted international media attention and challenged the imagination of thousands of Southern Californians over 10 nights as it crawled through 22 cities on a football-field length, 206-wheeledtrailer. The film captures this spectacle while weaving together the dramatic story of the reclusive Heizer, the ambitions of a major metropolitan museum, and the public's wild reactions to this massive display of modern yet eerily timeless conceptual art
