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.

Woah, epic. I found and added some background info.

It's like a less sad version of this guy.

I didn't add the background information on purpose, it's even more impressive without it.

I didn't find marble guy sad. I actually take comfort in knowing there is at least one guy playing with his marbles all day.

I don't see the point in withholding very relevant data.

Also it's true, the guy isn't that sad, the wife is though.

pimp-a-lot bear said...

Yeah his wife definitely needs a proper fuck. Any volunteers?

withholding, no, I wouldn't call it like that. I like mysteries, perhaps you don't.

But yes, very relevant information.
