Christian French, SuperHeroism: the Adventures of TransitMan
Investigating the power of everyday actions, artist Christian French has discovered an unlikely venue for salvation: public transportation.
Exposed to freakish Bureaucratic Radiations while serving as Artist-in-Residence at Sound Transit, the mild-mannered artist was transformed into a rogue SuperHero with a mission to save the world by
riding the bus.
SuperHeroism: the Adventures of TransitMan catalogues the
artist’s/Hero’s experiences to date and explores the questions that face
us all with regards to the choices we make on a daily basis. If it is
possible to change the world through simple acts, do we then have an
obligation to do so?
Before you answer, ask yourself “Do I look good in Spandex?”
