We all work collaboratively to envision, research, create and build the world you experience in Welcome Home. Our process involves embodying the message as well as sharing it; the obtaining of soul food and personal development being an integral part of our process as artists.
The company is made up of 22 members from all devisions of strategy, devising, building and many more. We also collaborate with new artists regularly. Below is a list of our current main creators.
Laura conceived of Infinite Experience in late summer of 2014 with the vision of forming a collective focused on exploring a shift in consciousness through embodied art form. Her aim through creating Welcome Home is to address the route cause of the discordant issues we experience on a global and inter-personal scale in confronting our perspective on who we are and how we relate to one another.
Her vision has emanated from shamanic practices in the Amazon rainforest to studying the concept of infinity at university. She describes her time working in the NGO sector in New York City and San Francisco as inspiration for the need to move away from an office setting focusing on change through cerebral means to create experiential work focusing on embodied transformation.
