IT IS EASY TO FEEL ALONE IN THAT JOURNEY

 

BUT THERE IS NO REASON TO SWIM ALONE

WELCOME CREATURE IS LEAD BY 19 YEAR OLD PAINTER, DANNY COLE

AS A CHILD, COLE FOUND A WORLD OF CREATURES IN HIS IMAGINATION

A HOME WHERE EXISTING CAME EASY - ONE OF UNIVERSAL UNDERSTANDING

THIS DREAM LINGERED AND DEVELOPED TO BECOME A SAFE INTERNAL RETREAT

AS COLE GOT OLDER, HE BECAME INCREASINGLY FRUSTRATED WITH INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL PUSHES FOR SELF ALTERATION THAT HINDERED INDIVIDUALITY

HE SOUGHT AWARENESS OF WHO HE REALLY WAS SO HE COULD BE JUST THAT

COLE TURNED AGAIN TO HIS TRUSTED PLACE: THE CREATURE WORLD

HE LISTENED TO HIS IMAGINATION TO REVEAL HIS IDENTITY TO HIM-

TO PAINT HIS DREAMS OF THE CREATURE AND STARE THEM IN THE FACE

TO UNDERSTAND HOW HE FELT ABOUT THEM, WHERE THOSE FEELINGS CAME FROM…

 
 

HOWEVER, 

THIS QUEST FOR SELF CONTROL SOON UNEARTHED GREATER PRIORITIES

 
 

 
 

IT IS IMPORTANT TO FOCUS ON THE SELF IN ORDER TO LIVE FOR ONESELF…

BUT HOW GOOD DOES UNDERSTANDING FEEL IF IT’S ONLY COMING FROM YOU?

 
 

SO COLE FORMED WELCOME CREATURE, A MOVEMENT THAT COULD MAKE HIS JOURNEY A SHARED ONE.

ONE THAT EVERYONE COULD PARTICIPATE IN TOGETHER

THE PICTURED EXPERIENCE SHOWS A DAY OF “VISUAL COGNITION,” IN WHICH PARTICIPANTS WERE INDUCED IN A LUCID STATE TO EXPLORE THE CREATURE WORLD THEMSELVES

 
 
 

EACH WELCOME CREATURE EXPERIENCE IS UNIQUE, BUT THE PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVE REMAIN CONSTANT

 
 

 
 

THE PHILOSOPHY

UNIVERSAL EMOTION

 

WELCOME CREATURE WORKS FROM A BASELINE OF UNIVERSAL EMOTION, THE IDEA THAT AT OUR CORE, THE EMOTIONS WE EXPERIENCE ARE THE SAME.

THE UNIVERSAL NATURE OF EMOTION CAN BE OBSERVED THROUGH THE EXISTENCE OF EMPATHY. 

THE FACT THAT HUMANS ARE ABLE TO COMPREHEND EMOTIONS EXPERIENCED BY OTHERS SUGGESTS IMMENSE SHARED EMOTIONAL GROUND.

 
 

PROJECTED UNDERSTANDING

 

BY THIS NATURE, TO BROADEN ONE’S UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR OWN EMOTIONS INHERENTLY EXPANDS THEIR ABILITY TO COMPREHEND THE EMOTIONS OF OTHERS.

 
 

HARMONY THROUGH AWARENESS 

 

TO SPREAD A SHARED UNDERSTANDING OF THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE IS TO FOSTER HARMONY.

FOR, IF WE ALL RECOGNIZE OUR IMPACT ON OTHERS THROUGH A SHARED LENS, WE CAN EXTEND THE SAME CARE WE HOLD FOR OURSELVES.

 
 

THE COMMON GROUND CREATED BY EXPLORATION THROUGH THE CREATURE ALLOWS FOR UNIQUE GROUNDING LEVELS OF SHARED UNDERSTANDING

 

 

AS THE CREATURE FINDS MORE HOMES, SO DOES HARMONY

SO DANNY COLE AND WELCOME CREATURE WILL KEEP SPREADING THE CREATURE EACH DAY
