I love it. El Muerto Rider is a customized 1968 Chevy Impala designed by artists Artemio Rodriguez and John Jota Leanos. They want to pay homage to the complex history of cruising and lowriding in California with a “Dead Lowrider” produced in the tradition of the Day of the Dead celebration. The fully functioning mobile art installation includes four animations from the New Media Opera, Imperial Silence that plays on the LCD movie screen in the car as well as radio programs from ¡Radio Muerto!, a specially curated radio dial with content from dozens of artists, writers, youth, and everyday Californians.
soon it will be a digital mural visible 24/7 on Galería de la Raza‘s Bryant Street Billboard, San Francisco.
