Art & Ideas
I spontaneously woke up at 6 am with energy and decided to walk down to LACMA to see if they were getting ready for today’s big reveal of Levitated Mass.
Basically, it’s a big rock and great engineering. The hype alone has been crushing.
So, you see why I think I might see some pre-reveal flurry of activity.
I saw no activity at LACMA. No special banner or preparations. In front of the museum I saw a tiny little red tricycle locked to a bike rack with a HUGE chain that made me wish I’d brought a camera. I tiptoed past an elderly woman sleeping on the sidewalk next to her wheelchair that made me wish better for her. I admired a Rodin behind bars in the garden. I watched the gas bubbles at the Tar Pit.
I noticed my breath, the quiet street, the vacant office space and I wondered what if we spent our resources and money lifting up people instead of rocks?
