Thumbnail for The Cave

My son, NIcolas Heller (a.k.a. Ricky Shabazz) recently directed and edited a short interpretive video about the apartment where I keep benign, volatile and explosive artifacts of design and commercial media that I use in some of my books on politics and counter culture. He writes:

Since I was an infant, I have feared my father’s den. Based on it’s ancient relics and mass clutter, I have since referred to the location as “Steven Heller’s Cave.”

“The Cave” is directed and edited by Nicolas Heller, cinematography by Michael J. Quill, music by Cliff Dweller. See it here.
