What Defines Greatness

2005, Video, 7:15 (Colour, Stereo)

by James Fritzgerald Craig

Working from a statement by Friedrich Nietzsche that to be great you must be willing to inflict great pain and suffering, and riffing on the idea of the ▄bermensch, this video presents a heavily altered looping 1930’s cartoon of Superman being pummeled by a laser beam. áSound by Krisjanis Kaktins-Gorsline. (Old film processed and mastered on video)
