I am currently working on a documentary about this project. There is no end in sight.
TRANSIT ANTENNA is a mobile living experiment, creative workshop and artist collective comprised of various folks
living and working while traveling the roads of North America. I was part of the original group which lived on a retired
city transit bus converted into a veggie oil guzzling RV named Walter. My wife and I, Bob and Dawn Snead, their son
Taylor and Kentridge the dog traveled over 30,000 miles and lived on the road for two years. This bus was as much
about design as it was functional, and we used many creative ways to solve living/work spaces, exercise, and power.
Since the burial of Walter, a new crew has taken over our website, and hit the road in their own bus conversion.
Here is the TRANSITANTENNA website.
Though we are artists, writers, filmmakers, chefs, and musicians, these roles seldom defined a collective goal.
Our crew made it through Mexico, Canada, and most of the US states including Alaska, visiting communities and
collaborating on art projects. Because Walter was our home, we were free to move spontaneously, staying put for
a week or shooting across the continent on a whim. The Transit Antenna project defines itself as the unfolding road
carries it to new places, people, and experiences.
The links below will take you to a few selections from our projects on the road.
