What do 1200 Matchbox-type cars have to do with Modern Art?

So what do you get when you take a model city and 1,200 model cars running at 200 scale mph?
You get this!

a 20′ x 30′ model city with 1,200 Matchbox-type cars running at 200 scale mph. It took four years to make and will open at the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art (LACMA) in Fall 2011.

Man I love this video but I know the 8 year version of me would have killed to have a set up like this somewhere in my parents house. It sculpture is stunning and the way the film is short really brings this tiny model metropolis to life.
