Long-time performance artist Chris Burden has been working on his 1,200-car Hot Wheel sculpture, "Metropolis II," for four years now. Well, he's finished it up now, and to celebrate it, the art piece is the star of a thoughtful, six minute documentary. Who knew Hot Wheels could be, well, deep?
The last time we saw Chris Burden's Metropolis II track was back in November when it was still a hunk of gray metal. Seven months later, the gigantic track with 18 car lanes and 13 railroad tracks is complete with colorful skyscrapers and has been sold for "millions of dollars."
Now this is art. It's the Metropolis II installation by Chris Burden at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and it looks amazing.
