I really enjoyed learning about Paul Pfeiffer and his work. I loved the way he set up his projects to revolve around the relationships between objects and people, especially in his "Horror Project" based off of the film Amittyville Horror. His sports projects really caught my attention; i thought it was interesting how he chose to take clips of single players or images, and then remove everything else around it. He always chose to use players that had a distinct emotion, or players that were in the center of thousands of people with bright lights all around them. I liked that he still always left the trace of something when he took it away, like a player's jersey number. It reminded me why we are really interested in these events in the first place, and that sometimes we may forget about the real reason why we're watching it. I especially had this notion while watching "Morning After The Deluge". I loved the way he put two different videos of the sun set and sun rise together and played them at the exact same time, i felt it expressed the simplicity yet beauty of life.
