How do you embody taking public transportation as a heroic act serving the public good? Why by wearing spandex, of course. Created during my residency at Sound transit, but kept as a hidden "alter ego" until after my contract was over because everyone was afraid I'd make a mockery of things. Art in the public sphere is a fraught enterprise.
