with kinetic sculpture
Metropolis II is a kinetic art installation by Chris Burden featuring 1,200 Hot Wheels. It includes 1,200 custom-designed cars and 18 lanes; 13 toy trains and tracks; and, dotting the landscape, buildings made of wood block, tiles, Legos and Lincoln Logs. Burden estimates that every hour about 100,000 cars circulate the system. Soon to be on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, or as my friend Gregg will refer to it, “Mecca”.
