Walking Sculpture with Michelangelo Pistoletto - Installation Short
Hired by the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Woodshop Films produced a multi-camera shoot of Michelangelo Pistoletto's Walking Sculpture. The artist rolled a giant ball of newspapers made with the help of Spiral Q Puppet Theater out of the museum onto the streets of Philadelphia. This video follows Pistoletto from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, along the Schuylkill River Trail to Rittenhouse Square, City Hall, and back up the Ben Franklin Parkway to the museum. The turnaround on the edit was very quick so that the museum could release some documentation of the italian artist's visit.
