Metropolis II : sculpture of futuristic city

January 14, 2012
Miniature cars move along the elevated freeway at Chris Burden’s large-scale kinetic sculpture, Metropolis II, during the media preview at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in Los Angeles, California January 11, 2012. The sculpture, 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 (386 kph), is meant to evoke the energy of a city. The exhibit opens to the public January 14.
