"an intense and a complex kinetic sculpture, modeled after a fast paced, frenetic modern city."
This exhibition is unique in the fact that it uses small scale RC cars to portray its fast-paced 21st century environment.
"Miniature cars speed through the city at 240 scale miles per hour; every hour, approximately 100,000 cars circulate through the dense network of buildings. According to Burden, "The noise, the continuous flow of the trains, and the speeding toy cars, produces in the viewer the stress of living in a dynamic, active and bustling 21st Century city."
LACMA does not give an exact date of its release as they state "Coming soon Fall 2011"

I'm curious to know how loud all these vehicles really are!
