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.
