Mix-Media/Digital Installation + Print Illustration/Dimensions Vriable

Super- project is a criticism of propaganda and the overused concept of “hero.” The use of comic patterns is implemented to create fictional characters based on existing political figures. The interactive process of “giving superpower” refers to how political figures have been shaped and empowered. Why do we need these “heroes?” Who empowers them? Why are these powers suitable when they are translated as “superpowers” in an imaginary world?
