The return of the letterpress had continued to astonish me even more. What I learn is how City Tech makes its own books through the same process as the trip to the Federation of the teachers trips. The cutting machine has the same method as the federation and that is to put two hands to the two buttons and cut the edge piece. To make a book with the stables and to connect the book is to be placed by the machine and then press the machine box. The trip really got me interested in creating a book and how the books are created through staples and binds either metallic or plastic.

My trip to the United Federation of Teachers was an astonishing trip to the point that make me change my views of printing. The printing is taking to a whole new level that redefines that evolution of printing and art. The art of printing has new forms of things waiting to happen. I felt new paper forms on the palm of my hand and it changed my views forever. Now there is an evolution of 3d printing that really had me interested. Printing in the form of trigonometrically architects and internal designing. It really shows its more architectural designing and its machinery that revolves around printing. The designing had me interested in ways not even myself can describe.
In the trip, I saw various types of machines that performs a very specific function of either folding envelope to printing on very certain material papers. The one that interested me was the paper cutting machine that allows the cutting board to cut the paper without leaving any error-cut. The machine detects your hand and it is only operational if the person pushes two buttons with both hands. The different methods of printing caught my interests in how a comic book or any posters work and is made. The cutting machine can cut up to 500 sheets of paper.
What caught my interests the most was the poster that I got to see and with the magnifying glass was able to see the little pixels like a dot. The pixels represents the level of high resolution and the detail of the color on the poster. In my opinion, I just the poster is done, just by Photoshop and then print. It turns out that the whole method is not as simple as I thought it would be. The method turned out to complex in developing a good high resolution poster rather than just a regular piece of poster. What I learned is that they do not joke around when it comes down to making letters or books. They are like perfectionists making sure that every item looks and feels brand new rather than feeling just crap.
The federation of teachers shows a complex and amazing method to create methods and make posters and books. The machinery was very expensive and I was really glad that they did not have to pay for all of the equipment. The government did its part on buying and now is the job of workers to handle the method of printing and who knows maybe I would apply in creating 3d printing and making architectural shapes. The trip really opened my eyes and made me view printing as an interesting method in making paper.
The Robo-tech logo is designed to demonstrate my interest in technology and its evolution in the modern era. I am interested in its evolution of technology and the next step to adapting into new forms of technologies that are holographic and new. Red is my favorite color and shows how technology is represented in my colors, but I choose red because the technology of our era is adapting to ways we can not imagine and in the future a new form of technology is made.

They each display a pattern of the office with its color textures and gorgeous scenes about the stadium within the horizon caught my attention on the brightness of the sun shining on the horizon. The image then leads to the nuerons in the brain and how each neuron is a repetition of an art and the artist display the light neurons on our head that are carried by protein and each light shows electrical circuits transporting data in a millisecond of time.

The results were staggering and the display was beautiful that each bottle of the exploded soda shooting up shows different textures and textures each bottle displays.

In today’s field trip at the AIGA, I saw the first design of the invitation of the first AIGA meeting that was for only rich white people who afforded a 1000 to pay for the program, in which case, in today’s AIGA, it only costs 50 dollars to enter (thank goodness for that.). I got to see the graphic of books of the designs of different people like the artist who created the art of Superman icons in the 1800’s and many interesting concepts like the portfolios, and the designs of the Honor wall really caught my attention. The one important lessons that the guide told us is that the art and designs that each graphic artists make expresses mood and character. The key concept of graphic design is to express a person’s mood and that is what each individual artists demonstrated in the cups while in the offices of the graphic designers. The trip was astounding and allowed me to get a better picture of what graphic designing really is. I still am concerned about the whole idea of the election papers being designed in a way Bush would win for presidency. Was it meant to confuse us or let him win on purpose. Who knows? But either way, It does not discourage the fact of my interests in graphic designing. The trip held interesting artwork and the books recording to the time of designs and its structures. The chicken without the head was kinda disturbing to me and catches my attention due to the fact that there are things in life that makes us not keep the head of the game and stay focus through our personal goals in life.
The picture of the headless chicken displays a shock to me, and it left me to question what does it mean. The artist display a good representation of an art that shocks people and leaves them to question
The trip to the Letterpress was an astonishing experience because there was an old printing press that displayed a style of crafting ink on paper. In history class, my professor mentioned that older technologies determine newer technologies and that theory contributes to the print press. In the letterpress, I was able to use the printing press and print ink on paper. I was nervous that the printing press may clobber may hand, but I got over my fear and the experience was proved astonishing. Without the invention of the printing press, society would have a hard time writing books and it would take months or years to complete a book.
