This time-lapse video of the House Spirits just proves what most Echo Park residents already know – the House of Spirits is one of the busiest liquor stores around. Artist and Echo Park resident Joe Santarromana – condensed an hour of footage (shot at 2 frames a second and played back at 24 frames a second) down to 38 seconds. The blazing neon of the House of Spirits and the light from the Los Burritos* next door make for an eye-catching scene, he said. “It looks like a theater set.”
* Correction: Got our our neighborhood burrito stands mixed up! The correct name of the stand in the video is Los Burritos – not Burrito King as mentioned in previous versions of this post.
