A note from the artist...
SUPERMANE was an opportunity for me to utilise the video format to explore static scenes. In this editorial, I hope you can be immersed into the moving image, experiencing the depth and dimension of each scene which was meticulously storyboarded. This piece is also a collection of symbolic audiovisual contrast, a theme I explore often in my work. When conceptualising this, I was heavily inspired by strong femininity, the aesthetic of the 70s and 80s, and the feeling of simultaneous beauty and power.
