What are found objects?

Found objects, objet trouvé in French, are items which an artist finds and incorporates within a work of art. Collectors have been displaying aesthetic objects in collections for centuries. But modern art uses objects with non-art functions, such as recycled or repurposed materials.

Animation

Animation is the term used to describe the process of showing sequences of static images in quick succession to create the illusion that the images are moving. Illustrators painstakingly drew separate images, slightly changing the moving parts with each image creating a movement series.

Comic strip art uses the subject matter and commercial printing techniques common to comic strips. A group of 1960s artists created art paintings which incorporated Ben-Day dots used in comics and advertising to create highly graphic designs in bright colors using traditional art media.

Avant-garde

Unusual and experimental ideas in arts or on the side of people introducing the ideas. The ideas push the boundaries or limits of what is accepted as the status quo or norm in the realm of culture. The movement is liked by artists and many of them continue doing it tracing Dada's history through situationists all the way to the post modern artists.
