LevitaTVed Mass

It took me 342 days to transport Michael Heizer’s “Levitated Mass” from LACMA to my living room, with help from corporate sponsors Samsung(stupid cell phone), Samsung(flat screen tv, actually belongs to Terry), Apple(laptop computer, actually belongs to Terry), Yahoo(email service, I pay $10 per year for), and most especially “Art and Soul” a public television magazine out of Minnesota, that airs locally on KQED.

edit to add, moments later: in a related dealio, I saw James Turrell on Charlie Rose, re-read the relevant section in Kimmelman, and noticed a piece on Turrell last week in Time: note distinction between Rodin (French sculptor), Rodan (from Japanese sci-fi films) and Roden the crater earthwork by Turrell, not far, conceptually or geographically, from Heizer’s piece. (The distance from Turrell “Roden Crater” to Heizer “City” is about 408 miles, I got from this website).
