The Creative Ecosystem
What Are We?
Since its creation five years ago immortalartist has sought to be different from most other creative websites. We wanted to break the rules for how creativity was perceived online.
Static Information Flow
Most content on a web is static. It does not move or change with the users of the site. These are static flat websites. "This apple is red" will still mean the apple is red five years later. We see information as a flow. Creativity is what creates the flow and in turn the apple becomes whatever color we want it to be every moment of its existence on the site.
Emotion Information Flow
What is social media? Social media is the exact opposite of a static website. Put into its simplest terms "Social Media is Emotional Information Flow". On social media, the apple may remain red, but we are sad, happy and angry about it.
Every post you make or respond to on social media represents both a flow of information and a flow of the users emotions. Sometimes creativity is added. The apple is blue because I say it is! But it is not the rule that it is always applied.
The Creative Ecosystem
We are a creative ecosystem. We employ information that helps creatives both learn and promote themselves. We employ a constant flow of creativity which changes the information content constantly. And we employ emotions that allows those who interact with it to see it an emotional gut level.

Sometimes we find art when we least expect it. Last evening, as I was nearing the end of my work night, I'd left two of the head sculptures on my work table to be completed. One of the heads had an under-layer of phosphorescent paint on it which had been painted over. Some of it was still peaking out through the paint but with the lights on, I hadn't noticed it. I shut the lights down in the studio and the scene above emerged, lit all in a bright phosphorescent glow. It was so surreal that it actually made me gasp. You see, usually I would leave lights on in the studio at the end of the night. But for some reason I shut everything off this night. If I hadn't, I would not have even noticed this or that the phosphorescent paint had been building up on the worktable over time. I scrambled for my camera in the dark and caught the image above.
