Heizer just loves these grand scale artworks, may be he was a pyrymid designer in his last life. He'd make for an inspiring arcitect.

Yeh, I know right. It becomes art if it's intensionally used to express somethin and is manipulated outta its found (natural) enviroment.

"The Rock" rocks. Takes real talent to dig up a rock?

hee hee. It's the wanting to get a rock and put it someplace else, and seeing the expression of an idea behind it that's the talent. Puting what's in your imagination into practise is the talent.

The article says the rock is "positioned to appear to be floating in mid air", however the video does not show the rock from any angle where that appears so.
