Tad Savinar has worked as a visual artist, urban planner, playwright, and director. His works in various media focus on the relationship between the individual and notions of officialdom, be they governmental, religious, or parental. In Man, 2006, an internal and likely unspoken set of feelings about home life, work, and driving are therapeutically announced. Graphic works including Champ, 1983, and Characteristics of a Third World Country, 2008, offer lessons in national pride, economics, and civics. For Savinar, language often functions best as image, where it can slip from spoken to seen, toying with the senses and complicating the everyday.
