Metropolis II, A Miniature City with 1,100 Cars Traveling Throughout It

Metropolis II by Chris Burden

“Metropolis II” by artist Chris Burden is a monumental kinetic sculpture of a miniature city with 1,100 model cars traveling along 18 roadways that snake throughout the structure. Recently completed after four years of construction, the work will be installed at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art this Fall. Supermarché has posted a wonderful short documentary about “Metropolis II,” and Co.design recently interviewed Burden about the process of building the sculpture.

We posted about “Metropolis II” last Fall, when the work was still under construction.
