Metatron is a prophetic voice about art and culture—a place where religion and politics, justice and environment, anthropology and anarchy, race and sex, food and science, faith and mysticism are not off-limits. This magazine is a place for people to discuss the events of the present and past. There is a magic to everything, a spirit that moves over the water. Two drops of rain on a windshield can carry a universe. In the movie V for Vendetta, a character declares, “God is in the rain.” We believe the Creator is in everything, and this is expressed in the work we publish and the community we cultivate.
Art cannot be created in a vacuum. Metatron encourages dialogue between those who find common ground creatively. The site brings many perspectives together with the ultimate goal of becoming a new medium for creative expression. Together we will gradually explore the multi-faceted nature of creativity, culture, and the Creator in order to uncover the material that weaves us all together.
Metatron acts as a hub for the ideas coming from the world of art. All content is intended to promote unity, not division. The purpose is to become a community that delves into the mystery of making while answering the question, “Are there undiscovered media?” We intend to investigate all answers to this question. Belief and art have rarely been combined in this way, but in today’s world many are seeking purpose in life while lacking focus and the ability to imagine. We believe all of us are designed to create. Art provides infinite possibilities. When a prophet or poet or researcher pursues her passions with complete abandon, we touch the face of God.
Who is Metatron?
“Metatron” is the name of an archangel referenced in the Talmud, an angel who is said to be the carrier of the Lord’s presence in the wilderness. I first heard this name in a dream four years ago. I believe it provides an important perspective of the kingdom. He has been called the “Pillar of Fire” in the desert for the children of Israel and also the “Cloud in the Daytime.” He is the “Heavenly Scribe” and “Keeper of the Presence of God.” As the angel who writes in heaven, he records the great and miraculous exploits in heaven and on earth.
