What is The 01experience?

“Art is a kind of innate drive that seizes a human being and makes him its instrument. The artist is not a person endowed with free will who seeks his own ends, but one who allows art to realize its purpose through him. As a human being he may have moods and a will and personal aims, but as an artist he is “man” in a higher sense— he is “collective man”— one who carries and shapes the unconscious, psychic forms of mankind.” — C.G. Jung

The artist, according to Jung, is a willing vehicle for the personal and collective unconscious.  The alchemist however, who is equally such a vessel, has the specific aim of psycho-spiritually evolving themselves - and therefore society.  

The 01experience is multi-dimensional art and ritual.  The founders, Melissa Mari and Colin E. Davis are "social alchemists".

The hermetic philosophers of the European middle ages shared their spiritual arts through philosophy, visual arts and writings.  Mari and Davis do this as well, but they also create music, multimedia theater and live ritual. 

The 01experience is being created in stages.  Stage 1 (2015-2017) was the creation of the original music and the story of Will and Faith.  Stage 2 will culminate with an event held in San Francisco, tentatively planned for winter 2017-2018. The investigations of Will and Faith will be released as a graphic novel in stage 3 and stage 4 takes the show on the road.
