Exploring the Imaginary Collective: The Artistic Vision of TJ Eisenhart

In the vast realm of contemporary art, TJ Eisenhart undoubtably stands out for his ability to weave together imagination, creativity, and a profound sense of connection. 

Who is TJ Eisenhart?

Once cycling US National Team in addition to living in europe racing on BMC program in the World Tour. Now not so much seeking stage wins but connection with others and the freedom of being and individual and expressing himself through multiple mediums. 

Imaginary Collective

From my perspective Imaginary Collective is an art experiment not only exploring itself but the world around it with a strong connection to cycling. Born from a deep-rooted curiosity about the human condition and the interconnectedness of humans. TJ Eisenhart's Imaginary Collective stands as a testament to the power of art in cultivating connections and inspiring collective imagination.
"Our collective imagination has the potential to bridge the gaps and create a more empathetic and united society".

Now, the Death Road has been done before. Going down the Death Road is nothing new. Going up the Death Road is less popular, but still, it's been done. So let's explain what makes this one different.
