I really like Paul's work because I thought it connected the most to the class itself within it's media aspects. I like that he took away some of the athletes bodies, or the basketball to really outline the significance of the sport or the player to really define the movements and how incredible they really are. I really like his intent because he is also trying to illustrate what we have made the sports world.. which is essentially an advertising campaign if you take the celebrity out. I like how it asks the question of whether or not we create the world of sports, or if it creates us and I really think it creates us with all of its hype and advertising, as if it matters. My favorite thing he did was getting rid of the basketball because than I could really focus on the complex movements of the basketball player and I could really what he was doing with each body part and how out of the ordinary the player was.
