You know it’s bad when Chris Burden thinks driving in LA is stressful

In a new video about Metropolis II, Chris Burden’s mini-city toy car piece which has been on view at LACMA for a couple of years, the artist bemoans the stressful stop-and-go of LA traffic: “I love hearing that the cars are going 230 miles an hour,” he said. “That’s about the speed they should be running, not 23.4 miles an hour which is what my BMW says I average driving around LA.”
