About this creation
A line of exactly 1,803 miniature cars stretches 143 feet long and carries the same number of people as a tiny 30-inch subway train.




This was designed as an infographic moreso than a statement; the cars, train, and bridge are all built perfectly to scale. I was shocked to learn that a train car is nearly as wide as a car and only 2.5 times longer, yet holds over 150 times more people at (not over) capacity.





Obese piles of cars pool up on either end of a simplified model of the Brooklyn Bridge, also to scale, which measures about 20 feet long.







And where on earth are people going to put these cars once they arrive?




Data based on actual DOT traffic counts over the Brooklyn Bridge during a 24 hour period and current New York City subway car running capacities.




This sculpture is part of my art show, Piece by Piece, which premiered in New York City in March 2013.

I use the same style of cars in my BKB too. This illustrates pretty dramatically how efficient public transportation (rail, at least) is compared to cars.

what a great perspective on things, I never could imagine how dramatical was the ratio of trains - cars, very good show case, and that bridge is wonderful! your gallery is so beautiful, it s a dream, lots of space, and superbly designed, bravo!

The fact that it's in scale is neat, and it's displayed really well.
