Seminal Los Angeles artist Lita Albuquerque and I had the pleasure of meeting and becoming friends over the course of the Armory Show week in New York recently. Her recent piece is a re-interpretation of her original 1980 “Spine of the Earth” (first made in the Mojave Desert), by using 300 people, rather than pigment, in Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook, Culver City. She had video footage of the new piece taken from helicopter as well as on the ground. The video performance is incredible; check it out by clicking the link above. —MM
