The Ultimate Car Crazy Toy is a Ginormous Work of Modern Art.

March 23, 2016 Joe V.

Playing with cars isn’t just a kid thing.

It’s totally a teen thing. Definitely a Dad thing. Always an American thing. The car has informed the design of our cities, our economy, our homes. It has zoomed itself into our toy boxes and even our artwork.

Artist Chris Burden created what I think is the ultimate musing on our car culture. And it's kind of a giant play set, too! A mesmerizing car city sculpture called Metropolis II. It’s on exhibit in L.A., but you can check it out in the video below.

Caution: While watching this, you may find yourself suddenly inspired to race cars down the hallway with your kids. Abandon your dinner plans! Build some ramps!
