Hunter Franks creates invitations to reimagine our social and physical landscapes. His practice spans participatory installations in public spaces that invite connection and curiosity as well as visual works that incite introspection. Projects include a 500 person dinner on a freeway, a public booth to help strangers overcome their fears, and a self-appointed Bay Area Rapid Transit Residency. His Neighborhood Postcard Project has been carried out in 23 communities from Chennai, India to Santiago, Chile and his League of Creative Interventionists has chapters in cities around the world from Cologne, Germany to Akron, Ohio.
In 2011 he walked from Los Angeles to New Mexico. He currently resides in San Francisco, CA.
