Giant-Sized Issues is an ongoing series of performative videos, photographs and installations. The project borrows the notion of super-power from popular comic book culture as an appealing but hopeless form of escapism. Part of a broader practice focused on speculative fiction, Giant-Sized Issues depicts super-bodies and other-worlds that both admit their impossibility while imaging other potentials. Through simple lighting techniques and digital processes an image of super-power is created but ultimately (and purposefully) it fails to construct a seamless illusion. Each piece attempts to create a tension between the appeal of suspended disbelief and the inevitable failure to escape the real world. The series is divided into three volumes which were shot beginning in 2008.

Volume 1 was created in the winter of 2008, and was exhibited in the Bermont Gallery at UCLA's Broad Art Center.
