Rub?n Ortiz Torres’s presentation begins with a video showing various lowrider cars, eventually focusing on a truck with the words “Alien Toy” painted on its doors. The truck’s bed lifts and splits, then begins to spin like helicopter blades over the truck. The camera then turns to the hood which also lifts and spins, followed by the doors which do the same. The front end of the truck then detaches and begins to drive around the back half while both continue dancing. This video is immediately followed by a live video performance using puppets, live DJ music, and a computerized voice reading a statement about the history of alien contributions to contemporary art.

Rub?n Ortiz-Torres discusses the making of his video Alien Toy followed by a selection of his work. The video features a lowrider truck designed and built by Salvador Mu?oz, originally called Wicked Death. Ortiz-Torres first met Mu?oz at a car show and was fascinated by his extreme take on a lowerider truck. He sees it as a mutation of a mutation. Ortiz-Torres discusses his photography in which he seeks to capture moments of clashing and mixing cultures. He sees this being provoked by outsiders in dislocated positions, such as Pablo Picasso working in France and Marcel Duchamp working in New York.
