A lowrider ballet, digital truck, and more electronic art at ISEA (pictures)
The International Symposium on Electronic Art was held in New Mexico this year, and Crave's Eric Mack caught the closing block party on Albuquerque's stretch of Route 66.
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.
A popular theme at ISEA seems to be grabbing anything with a circuit or lights and adding wheels to it.

Robotic cell phone birds
These robotic birds made from old cell phones responded to gallery-goers' movements but didn't seem to worry about protecting their eggs from any evil pigs that might be snooping around. Get the full story behind the electronic avian specimens from Crave's Amanda Kooser.
Part of ISEA's Route 66 finale was a symphonic performance by local lowriders, with music fed through the cars' radios as they turned and bounced in a sort of metallic ballet. Watch the full performance in Amanda Kooser's post.
