22949978 story L.A. Artist Contemplates Future Traffic Flow, With Hot Wheels 118 Posted by timothy on Saturday August 06, 2011 @08:09PM from the finally-a-reason-to-visit-los-angeles dept. John3 writes "American artist Chris Burden is finishing up his latest work titled Metropolis II for display this fall in Los Angeles. There's a fascinating five minute documentary on YouTube about his miniature city and the traffic that flows through it. He comments 'The idea that a car runs free, those days are about to close.' Whether you agree or disagree, he certainly has built one of the coolest Hot Wheels layouts I've ever seen."
