Traditional printing techniques can be time consuming. We as humans never really obtain a true sense of time. There is the present, the past and the future. Each human has their own specific attitude towards each but we can apply some general characteristics to the perception of time as a whole. The past generally evokes a sense of nostalgia, the present is forever short and long, we struggle with the limited time we have yet we are constantly itching, scratching, and racing towards our future.
