Metropolis II

Chris Burden has done all sorts of crazy performance art, most of it more controversial than good.  But at the excellent Los Angeles County Museum of Art, he's installed a frenetic Hot Wheels track featuring 1100 cars across 18 lanes.  It is mesmerizing and very loud.  "Metropolis II" requires an operator present when running; Mr. Burden employs engineers for this task rather than maintaining it himself.
