Artist Kamau Patton wanted to get a different angle on Los Angeles architecture. Taking off in a Robinson R-44 from Van Nuys Airport in California, he completed a choreographed fly-by of some of the city's tallest buildings. The result is a video project called "The Sky Above," featuring an aerial view of the city at sunset, complete with all the chatter from the helicopter and its passengers. The piece was made possible with the help of the Machine Project, a nonprofit that aims to give people a new perspective on Los Angeles.
