Christian French, SuperHeroism: the Adventures of TransitMan



TransitmanInvestigating 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?”
