Kobe Bryant was my Idol. He taught me to be the best at everything I do and that if I want something done in life, the only one stopping me from achieving it, is ‘me’. His passing motivated me to try and push others to their fullest potential and find their passion by watching my journey. If you can’t already tell, my project is a display of a broken up or distorted basketball court. I have replaced the traditional backboard with a video screen onto which my work is displayed to provide mental or emotional support when one is unmotivated or discouraged.The reference of the hoop is to take risk in life. Take that shot in life whether you are sure about it working or not. They say “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take” and that applies to everyday life situations as far as reaching your goals. No risk, no reward.
