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.

Burying The Art With the Artist
In the past few months I've seen a number of tribute accounts for the YouTube killer Nasim Aghdam. As is known to many she was an artist among other things. My questions to you is are these accounts appropriate or inappropriate?
Should this woman be left to the tides of time and forgotten about? Or should she be cast as a Jesse James type hero?
And does her art have merit on its own, or is it as guilty of her crimes as she is?
The questions apply to several others including the art of Adolph Hitler before he became a tyrant.
Where do we draw the line? What is acceptable art and what is not?
