Chris Burden’s Metropolis II

LACMA – Chris Burden’s Metropolis II

Artist Chris Burden took 4 years to build this complicated city in motion sculpture – Metropolis II.  A mix of HO scale train sets, specific built roadways and highway system built around an incredible looking city.  Over 100,000 miniature cars speed around the tracks at 240 mph on a magnet system.  Check out this really cool mini-documentary:

If you are traveling to SoCal, make sure you stop by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to see Chris Burden’s Metropolis II Exhibition.  It looks amazing and is really incredible.
