Immersive experience: an experience that consists of bringing the viewer into a story, a game, a musical composition or a work, by appealing to several senses through technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality, mixed reality, spatialised audio, video mapping, etc. These technologies can cross over with other disciplines such as live performance or visual arts.
Digital art: art made with the help of digital devices. Digital art takes into account technological developments and encompasses several disciplines. It is a constantly evolving subject of reflection and research which makes a fixed definition difficult.

2D/3D Animation: While 2D animation is a technique that consists of bringing elements (objects, scenery, characters, etc.) to life in a two-dimensional space, 3D animation uses computer-generated images to create a three-dimensional animation (length, width and height). These animation techniques are used in animated film, video games, virtual reality, and digital art experiences.
Internet Art: Interactive creations that use the internet and its tools as a medium for creation and dissemination.
Video Art: A form of art based on producing videos. Since its creation, video art has been keeping pace with the development of new image and sound technologies and exploiting the possibilities of computer-generated images and interactivity with the viewer.

Comic books/Graphic novels: A type of narrative that uses a succession of images, often accompanied by text to convey the words, feelings, or thoughts of the protagonists.
Generative Art: Digital art creation that relies on algorithms to create self-generating and/or non-predetermined works.
Data Visualisation: Data visualization consists of converting a large set of raw data (texts, numbers) into visual representations to facilitate their understanding.
Escape Game: Escape game in which the participants, locked in a room symbolising a closed place, must work together to conduct an investigation and solve the puzzles that will enable them to escape within a specific timeframe.
Sound Experience: Installation or performance that uses sound as a creative material, thanks to a varied set of artistic practices (sound spatialisation devices, 3D or binaural sound, etc.).

Action and Adventure Game: A video game in which the player is tasked with completing a mission through a scenario consisting of a succession of events, whose resolution enables the player to advance through the space and time of the game until the end of the adventure.
Role Playing Game (RPG): A video game in which the player plays one or more characters who evolve in a scripted story.
Simulation Game: A video game that simulates the reality of human activity or the functioning of a machine.
Sports Game: Video game based on the simulation of an individual or team sport that is generally realistic in order to reproduce a sports competition.
Strategy Game: Video game in which the player must plan an action in order to achieve an objective: build an army, an empire or a civilisation, accumulate and manage resources, establish the best strategy to defeat the opponent, etc.
Casual Game: A video game intended for a broad audience that is characterised by quick learning, simple rules, simplified game mechanics, and short games for those who occasionally want to play.
Narrative Game: Video game bordering on cinema and interactive experience in which the player is faced with a series of choices in order to tell a story.

2D/3D Digitisation and Recreation: Techniques for obtaining a two- or three-dimensional representation of a subject (object, landscape or living being) in order to archive, reconstruct or modify it.
Augmented Reality: Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that allows an artificial world created digitally to be superimposed on the real world in real time. This is done via a screen (smartphone or tablet).
Mixed Reality: Mixed Reality (MR) is the fusion of real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualisations, where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time. This is done using special glasses.
Native podcasts: new way of broadcasting audio content on the Internet. A native podcast is an audio program specifically created for digital broadcasting, outside the context of a radio program.
Virtual Reality: Virtual Reality (VR) is a technology that immerses a person in a digitally created artificial world. It can be a reproduction of the real world or a completely imaginary universe. The experience attempts to reproduce reality by stimulating certain senses: primarily sight and hearing, followed by touch and even smell.
