Doug Pray's documentary Levitated Mass recounts how artist Michael Heizer conceived and later created the art piece that gives the film its title. Installed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the piece involves a massive boulder suspended in the air. Heizer's initial idea for the project came to him in the late '60s, but not until 2012 did he have access to the technology that would make hauling and lifting such a massive boulder possible.
