Levitated Mass: Giant boulder crowns the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Text: Detail Daily
The rock weighs 340 tons and was transported from the quarry to the LACMA campus in Jurupa Valley with a giant crawling machine. The 100 kilometres journey took eleven nights! It is believed that moving the rock will be get an entry in the Guinness book of World Records as the heaviest object ever transported...
There is an undeniable sculptural tension between the straight lines of the walkway with its smooth, sheer concrete walls, and the rough, uneven rock that sits astride the man made structure.
It is also very interesting that despite the superlative statistics about the rock, it actually looks very small in comparison to the modest height of the walls and the length of the pathway.
