Metropolis II

4 August 2011

Stressful, that’s how our lives have become. Stressful continuous mechanized routines, all part of a perfectly lubricated machinery whose pace & timings keep accelerating overtime. Chris Burden‘s latest piece (recently finished after 4 years in the making and that we had seen a while ago @ his studio in Topanga) may not be a metaphora but it could easily represent out current western mentality and state of mind.

Metropolis II” sculpture is finally being taken out of his studio and will be re-installed @ LA’s Country Museum of Art (LACMA) this fall as a long-term loan.

┬áThe kinetic sculpture has 1200 toy cars… and if you think that’s noisy, think about us.
