Metropolis II

Miniature cars move along the elevated freeway at Chris Burden’s large-scale kinetic sculpture, Metropolis II, exhibited at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in LA, California.
The sculpture is modeled after a fast-paced futuristic city with 1,100 miniature cars running through an elaborate system of roadway tracks at a scale speed of about 240 miles per hour.
