Super Zombie Jesus

Ezra Li Eismont 2011

On a recent trip to the Smithsonian museum I noticed that an old version of Jesus with the sacred heart had a resemblance to Clark Kent revealing his superman suit underneath his business clothes. This was the inspiration for super zombie jesus. I am interested in how mythologies are reflected in media, how threads of mythologies intertwine.  Who are our heroes? Our enemies? Whom do we learn to look up to, whom do we learn to despise? What cultivates our self control and mastery? Fear or Love? How are mythologies used to help define our decision making process? How are mythologies used to reinforce stereotypes?  What images do we find offensive? What images do we find attractive? How do images shape and mold our consciousness? I’ve got more questions than answers.
