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.

The Key to Experimental Art



The key to experimental art is to not start out with a concept, but instead to start out with a technique. If the concept is introduced to soon then the experimental nature of the art does not have a chance to evolve. 

If you decide what its supposed to be first then the technique is squelched. But if you just let the technique flow and evolve, more often than not the concept for what to do with it will emerge in its own time.

Consider when you first became an artist. You learned the technique first. Later you used that technique to develop new concepts in your art. The problem is that once we establish our base skills, we reverse the process, placing the concept first. So when we do experiment with something new, we are unprepared to change back to the original way we learned.

When we change our perceptions, we change the way we look at the world. In turn we become much better artists.
