Super is the final project of Richard Clarkson’s MFA at SVA. The thesis is an inquiry into why superpowers hold so much sway over specific western populations and exploring why Richard was so enchanted by them.
Through the research he found that historical superpowers were derived from abstractions of human nature, fears and desires and later used as a way to mitigate paranoia and social unease. Personally superpowers became Richard’s coping mechanism during his transition from New Zealand to New York, into an enormous world with truly insurmountable problems.
