Why is it that something as beautiful as her wishes to aid him and watch him? Why must she accompany him, as if to be some kind of voice of wisdom to a dark deity of injustice and vengeance? Why did she choose him? Why?
The roof was slick and slippery from the night time rain, but he was only a black and red clad idol. A deadly harbinger of the storm, and an even deadlier adversary to those who worship the long dead.
"They don't need to die, they need guidance." said the angel.
He didn't turn to her when she spoke, instead he stood still, mute as ever. One can only wonder as to what it is the angel finds so divine in what he is.
"Divine is not the word that springs to mind for one such as you; don't fool yourself."
Perhaps not... but there are no other vanguards like him. At least not anymore.
"Don't be so glum; you'll always have me by your side." She was right about that, and he didn't like her for being right. "No... you like me for being beautiful, don't you?" He stood there unphased by her remark, although he could feel his heart skip a beat. She was the only one to make him do that, and he didn't like her for that either.
"I don't mind if you don't like me, because I know you kind of do." She giggled a bit, teasing him as though she were a child. He let a slight smile form upon his face, but only a slight smile.
According to Andy Warhol, "In the future, everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes."
These words have become a mantra for our modern culture, cementing their author's reputation as a prophet of the age. But if Warhol is the psychedelic Ezekiel of the cult of modern art, cloaked in a black turtle neck and bleach blonde wig, uttering words of divinely inspired wisdom, then Marshall McLuhan is King Solomon, holding the key to unlock the mysteries of our automatic age. McLuhan wrote in his book The Mechanical Bride: "It is critical vision alone which can mitigate the unimpeded operation of the automatic."
Every time you turn on your television, your radio, or your computer you are interacting with an automatic visual, audio, or pixelated host. Media is the electrical communion in the shrine of our branded, commercialized, psycho-analyzed homeland.
We humbly submit for your viewing pleasure our latest piece of mind over media, we call it: Digital Freakshow.
A Quick Word From Our Staff
We hope you have enjoyed you're journey through the digital art district. Why not stay a while longer and visit the New World Creative Store; much more than a store, we give you the experience of being able to get up close and personal with the art just by hovering your cursor over the pictures of the particular piece you have selected.

A great specter is looming over the art world: the specter of Inter|Sekt. For far too long we have watched the artists of our generation turned into a disposable commodity, bought and sold by the galleries, stifled in their expression by the tastes of the art consultants who purchase pieces on behalf of financially minded clients who want a "solid investment".
They have been amalgamated into schools, said schools are a device of gallerists and art historians to divide and conquer the creatives and free thinkers.
For we live in a nation which thinks itself to be free yet is not, they expect the same of their artists.
Our culture has been raped and plundered by the upper echelon, picked apart and sold by the same greed mongers who claim to be it's patrons. The tool which has most effectively stunted the growth of modern American art in particular is the clever indoctrination of this idea of schools to not only the art student but anyone whom even reads a brief survey of the history of art sees that it is broken up into these categorized schools; the philosophies of these various sects creates conflict, division, and ultimately destruction of the morale and submission to the established order. Thus rendering the creative spirit confused and useless.
This helps curb the rebellious spirit of the average citizen outside of the art world in other spheres of society.
Art history is a lie and galleries are dens of thieves!
Inter|Sekt is not destroying the schools or the galleries, we are simply showing you they were never real, at least not in a world outside of that constructed by academics to sell text books to art students.
The reign of the gallerists and art consultants is over when you want it to be.
From the ashes of the indoctrinated schools of every form of art shall arise The New World Creative.
