Cornelia Parker builds PsychoBarn on the Met roof garden

Cornelia Parker talks about her project PsychoBarn, a version of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho House built out of a repurposed red barn and placed in the Met's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden.

She takes a while to get going, but it picks up later, and once explained it's a rather fun piece.

YouTube description:

This spring, British artist Cornelia Parker will create a site-specific installation atop The Met's Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. The installation will be the fourth in a series of commissions created specifically for the outdoor space.
