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.

Upcycling in Art


A great midnight haul of Styrofoam for the City Lost project. Styrofoam is one of those substances that once you know how to work with it, the possibilities become endless for how to use it. I've always been proud of the fact that most of my sculpture work involves upcycling. There are so many remarkable things out there in the world that can be gotten for free if we as artists just have the ingenuity to turn them into something. When you consider that the Styrofoam found above will become something similar to the sculptures seen below, then you know the true value of what others perceive as junk.
