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.
