Mission: To Save The World...By Riding The Bus!

TransitmanGrowing out of my tenure as Artist-in-Residence for Sound Transit (2005-06), Transitman is a personal project assessing the role of the
individual in society, exploring the public vs. hidden natures of being an artist, and embodying the idea of commuting as an act of heroism any
citizen can perform.

A meditation on the power of choice, and the ramifications of its exercise, this project expresses some of my assumptions about the hidden capacities we all have to make a difference in the world. Every act has
infinite consequence. Even a simple choice like how you commute. We have the power to shape the world through our thought, speech or actions. Awakening to this potential is both liberating and unnerving. If you truly believed that you could save the world, would you do what it would take? Even if it meant walking around town in brightly colored Spandex? Careful how you answer…
