The Super Project began as a collection of things branded by the common superlative. It has since expanded to include a series of works joined by the use of the word ‘Super’ as an over-arching medium. This group of works explore the transformative qualities of the word.
Super Collection, 2000 - ongoing
(suitcase, a selection of items from my Super Collection)
These mundane objects are rendered grand in the context of a collection, permitting the everyday to be extraordinary. In the form of a collection the word is taken quite literally. This places a great expectation on these Super things to render my own experience/ identity as super as well.

Super Infinity, 2002
1 minute loop (rub-on numbers applied to blank Super 8 leader film) Collaboration with Dave Dyment.
The word Super is transformative, but is so ubiquitous that we have forgotten what it really means. A concise marriage between material and form, a play on words and material, this film conjures up several associations: and endless countdown before a film, a moebuis strip, a fragile infinity.
