Circuit-board truck on Route 66

The International Symposium on Electronic Art was held in New Mexico this year. In this prime example of the art form, Albuquerque artist DocAtomic transformed this old beater truck into the final resting place of many an obsolete circuit board. It's seen here parked along Route 66 in downtown Albuquerque at ISEA's closing block party.
