Imitation would be welcome
While I wouldn't go as far as to stack him up against the Sistine Chapel (having not seen either) I'm as big a fan of Sol LeWitt as the next art person.*
While I've seen (and enjoyed, and blogged) art galleries who record the creation and erasure of LeWitt's wall drawings, I think Christopher Knight is the first critic to capture the experience he's having on video, so he can share it with his readers. Artists and galleries are going multi-media; why shouldn't critics?
*who doesn't think that "Sol Lewitt was not an artist, and none of his so-called drawings qualify as art---not by any objective definition of the concept..."
