While we're on the subject of exhibitions, have you seen this? Metropolis II, a complex kinetic sculpture, modeled to replicate a fast paced modern city. This unusual artwork includes steel beams that form a grid interwoven with an elaborate system of 18 roadways, including one 6 lane freeway, and HO scale train tracks. Miniature cars speed through the city at 240 scale miles per hour; every hour, the equivalent of approximately 100,000 cars circulate through the dense network of buildings. According to artist Chris Burden, "The noise, the continuous flow of the trains, and the speeding toy cars, produces the stress of living in a dynamic, active and bustling 21st Century city."
