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.

Generative Art

It refers to art wholly or partly created through a special autonomous system. In this context, the autonomous system can be an independent or a non human one, capable of determining its features that would otherwise be determined by the artist. The generative system can take the creator's role or his artistic creator. Generative art is often used to refer to the algorithmically computer generated work.

Tempera

Tempera is a paint traditionally made with colored pigments and egg yolks. The paint dries quickly and lasts a very long time. Some examples still remain from 100 AD. Modern tempera paint uses glue size with the colored pigments instead of egg yolks.
