Greater Los Angeles Traffic Galaxies

The Grass Collective has recently uploaded a short, amazingly hypnotic aerial video of nighttime Los Angeles traffic – and I was embarrassingly excited to find that you can actually order a whole DVD (!) of the stuff.
There’s only a minute or two available on the site, but I can imagine quite a juicy first date starting off with nothing but an LA traffic DVD, a bearskin rug, maybe fill your bedroom with some car exhaust… Hot.

(Traffic video spotted in Dwell Magazine. See also BLDGBLOG’s Knot Driver, including an earlier piece on the geometry of Los Angeles traffic control; for more of David Maisel’s photography do not miss Terminal Lake).
