Clay is earth which is made when rocks weather and finally decompose. It takes a long time for water to carry pieces of earth, creating muck. The muck is collected, cleaned, prepared by removing rocks, and refined by adding sand to make clay.

Capitalist realism is a German form of political pop art which sought to challenge the influence American pop art had developed in the Western world. The Cold War era Berlin movement began in 1963, and represented the ideologies of both pop art and socialist realism.

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.

Mono-Ha

Meaning "School of things" Mono-ha originated in Tokyo in the mid-1960s. Instead of traditional artwork, the artists of Mono-ha made use of the different materials and their various properties in their works to show dismay for the industrialization that was occurring in Japan at the time. The movement ended up gaining international attention and is a widely-respected form of art.
