Metropolis II
  • “1,200 custom-designed cars race around the large scale sculpture metropolis II by artist Chris Burden. The piece will soon be exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on a long-term loan. The huge kinetic sculpture contains a massive roadway in which the small toy cars race around. The road system contains 18 lanes with 13 toy trains and a variety of buildings made from lego and lincoln logs. The whole system is designed to mimic a real freeway, as you will see in the video below.”

    Can you imagine seeing something like this when you were nine or ten? It would have kept me up at night.
