Superhero, a visiting interactive art exhibit by Spanish arts collective Wildbytes, promises to take Tree City residents's dreams from the comic page to monolithic life. The exhibit uses Kinect cameras to give participants a variety of superpowers—toss energy balls, grow huge or tiny, or take flight like Superman.
