Hi 'n' Lo,

A new Ruben Ortiz Torres video just showed up on youtube.
It's described by it's author as:

"The missing link between Brancusi, constructivism and the low rider pick up movement of the late eighties and early nineties."

I think you could also add Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, and Fernand Leger to that list.

Last up, is the first work by Ruben Ortiz Torres I ever saw. I guess it's his most famous.

It still looks and sounds good after all these years, especially on youtube.

It belongs mixed in-between a whole list of low bit rate rips of constructivist/futurist films and 3gp's of radical beds and hydraulic hops.
