Conscious Sports Fan

ERIC SENCINDIVER With an emphasis on versatility, this collection of t-shirts has been designed to be All-purpose for any and every sports fan. Today’s sports fan is an interesting character as they relate to today’s globally connected world. Fans create alliances with certain sports clubs/teams for a wide variety of reasons. With the growing popularity of fantasy sports, some fans are working overtime cheering for several different players and teams at the same time. In some instances a fan can passionately hate a certain player one day and with a trade to the right team, turn into their number one fan the next day. This creates a behavior that is irrational in nature. Every player needs their teammates to be successful. Every team needs other teams to form a league. Leagues must also cooperate with one another internationally. This is an interdependent relationship that should not be overlooked by an enthusiastic fan. Addressing this issue can be a step towards the realization that we all depend on each other in this world.

Font
A special font titled All-Pro US has been constructed using various North American team logos from a variety of sports. This could not have been achieved by pulling from a single league alone. The term RESPECT THE GAME was originally developed as a self-defense mechanism for the artist to diffuse physical & verbal altercations during pick-up basketball games. A new level of meaning is achieved when using the All-Pro US font to make a single unifying statement out of images that would normally be used in contrast with one another. GO TEAM is a positive expression using Team in a broad way that can apply to any team reminding us that we are all connected. This design can also be relevant in other environments outside of sports. The THAT’S MY TEAM design provides an opportunity to claim allegiance with a team, however it can be applied to different teams on different occasions. This collection of designs provides a versatility that cannot be matched in the world of sports fashion and team apparel.

  • You try your hardest to give people their space, but at moments you know you’re capturing their image in ways they may or may not be okay with. It’s that rocking back and forth between respect and betrayal that I feel like is at the heart of the film.

    Visual culture is now the study of how to understand change in a world too enormous to see but vital to imagine.

    Nicholas Mirzoeff

  • Photographers learn to interpret photographs in that technical way because they want to understand and use that ‘language’ themselves (just as musicians learn a more technical musical language than the layman needs). Social scientists who want to work with visual materials will have to learn to approach them in this more studious and time-consuming way

    Howard Becker

  •  

    Sometimes one picture is equal to 30 pages of discourse, just as there are things images are completely incapable of communicating.

    William S. Burroughs

  •  

    One advantage of photography is that it’s visual and can transcend language.

    Lisa Kristine

  •  

    For any picture, ask yourself what question or questions it might be answering. Since the picture could answer many, questions, we can decide what question we are interested in.

    Howard Becker

  • Before I became a film major, I was very heavily into social science, I had done a lot of sociology, anthropology, and I was playing in what I call social psychology, which is sort of an offshoot of anthropology/sociology – looking at a culture as a living organism, why it does what it does.

    George Lucas

  •  

    Every photograph promises more than it delivers and delivers more than it intended.

    Steve Harp

  •  

    The task for sociology is to come to the help of the individual. We have to be in service of freedom. It is something we have lost sight of.

    Zygmunt Bauman

  •  

    If it’s far away, it’s news, but if it’s close at home, it’s sociology.

    James Reston

  •  

    There are dignified stupidities, and there are heroic stupidities, and there is such a thing as stupid stupidities, and that would be a stupid stupidity not to have a camera on board.

    Werner Herzog

  • Give us adequate images. We lack adequate images. Our civilization does not have adequate images. And I think a civilization is doomed or is going to die out like dinosaurs if it doesn’t develop an adequate language for adequate images.

    Werner Herzog

  • Watching a documentary with people hacking their way through some polar wasteland is merely a visual. Actually trying to deal with cold that can literally kill you is quite a different thing.

    Henry Rollins

  • We never really know what’s around the corner when we’re filming – what turn a story will take, what a character will do or say to surprise us, how the events in the world will impact our story.

    Barbara Kopple

  •  

    The function of sociology, as of every science, is to reveal that which is hidden.

    Pierre Bourdieu

  • If you want to tell the untold stories, if you want to give voice to the voiceless, you’ve got to find a language. Which goes for film as well as prose, for documentary as well as autobiography. Use the wrong language, and you’re dumb and blind.

    Salman Rushdie

  •  

    Reality changes; in order to represent it, modes of representation must change.

    Bertolt Brecht

  • I believe that we face incredible obstacles in our attempts to see the world. Everything in our nature tries to deny the world around us; to refabricate it in our own image; to reinvent it for our own benefit. And so, it becomes something of a challenge, a task, to recover (or at least attempt to recover) the real world despite all the impediments to that end.

    Errol Morris
