The field trip to the BRIC Art museum was awesome! There was a lot of different pieces from artists that were from Brooklyn. ¬†Everything was very uniquely made. Like there was this pixelated picture of plants. It helped show how something could be so different when you alter it. At the bottom, was the original picture. Another thing was these chains hanging from the ceiling. It looked like a chandelier. The chains went from small bicycle chains to big rusted chains. There was this other piece made out of clay. It look like a monster you’d see from a video game. It looked really cool. We also got a tour of the television studio which was one of the most interesting parts for me. We saw how they filmed people and how people work, when their editing videos. Lastly we got to see a Professor Spevack special. It was a out house that looked like it came from the back of a Texas saloon. It was so cool. It was dark inside and very relaxing. Calm, natural music was plain. This added more to its calmness. I really liked the stenciled leaves on the door, which could only be seen if you opened the door. Props to Professor Spevack, it was an awesome trip and a amazing piece. ūüėÄ

Our¬†field trip to the Center for Book Arts was very interesting and fun! It was a good way to learn about print making. It started out with us just looking around finding interesting pieces of art. Then this guy started talking to us about print making and book¬†binding. It sounded like he was giving a lecture. He told us the history of everything and how it turned into what it is today. I saw how tedious it can be to print something. ¬†Also I learned if you made a mistake when your printing it was very hard to undo it.¬†Now it¬†takes just a press on the keyboard to undo something.¬†Overall the¬†zine exhibit was very interesting. I found this nice magazine about your relationships with the train lines. It was so funny.¬†Then there was this piece about president Bush.¬†Then there was this spinning head mannequin lady. It looked so beautiful, you could literally tell that the person spent a lot of time making it. ¬†After the Center of Book Arts we went to the Rubin Museum. We were looking at the Francesco Clemente exhibit. It was very different from the Center of Book Arts. It was quieter and cleaner. It felt more professional. At the exhibit I liked the piece called The Four Counters. It‚Äôs a picture of a hand reaching out of water with stars at the background. Also the hand had the drawings of the world map on it. The countries weren’t ¬†placed right because everything was scaled and placed wrong.¬†Francesco Clemente brought together¬†Eastern and Western traditions in his pieces.¬†I really liked the two field trips, I hope we have many more.
