Flashback: Metropolis II and Chris Burden

RIP Chris Burden, the creator of Urban Light, Shoot and – my favorite – Metropolis II (2012).

I produced this first-person in a day without a light or an editor, as you can tell. I habitually overshoot. But this was one of the few times I remember wishing I had more tape, especially reaction shots. Every time I visit LACMA to see this art in action, I watch people’s faces and reshoot the package in my head.
