Chris Burden Exhibition at MAK Vienna

Having just returned from Vienna from my latest "Radio-Show " I´m still very impressed from the Chris Burden Show at MAK (Museum for applied Arts).
The center of the show was an installation called "The flying steamroller". It´s a huge mechanical installation which is able to lift a 12 ton yellow Navy steamroller (from 1968) several feet in the air and force it silentlessly into a circle course through the exhibition space. It´s hard to describe, and I didn´t believe it until the demonstration which take place every two hours. A guy from the museum climbs the steamroller, starts its engine, drives it along its round course, and from the centripodal forces the steamroller is lifted into the air! Fantastic!!
