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.

Abstract art is a strange creature. It can be way too easy. Artists fall back on it because they think its quick and pretty and doesn't take a whole lot of thought to create. But the opposite is true. For an abstraction to work, it must have a level of complication that goes beyond other types of art. This piece by Haydn Dickenson is a an excellent examples of this. This piece is truly complex. It has a lot of different levels to it. It has depth and motion and it invokes more than an abstraction. You can see shapes within it. What you imagine you see within it, may be totally different from what I imagine. This is what an abstract piece of art should strive to achieve. Haydn says that he tries not to preconceive his art and that it usually fails when he does so. When an artist knows their craft then the complexity springs up automatically without having to pre-plan and think through the piece ahead of time. This is when our skills surpass what we learned from others and begins to come from directly within us.  ~G~
