It can definitely be established that I love travelling. And even more so when it’s accompanied by the words worldwide, global, international, cosmopolitan, collaboration, projects, and the like. These words excite me to no end, and give me a rush like no other —— of which I believe are brought about when I resonate with something I’m incredibly passionate about. I find myself deeply inspired each and every time, with the strongest desire to surge forward with such drive and ambition until I reach my own respective goals, and go beyond them.
I love coming across pictures and short films of busy, productive individuals —— movers and shakers —— going about their bustling everyday lives. Attending meetings, discussing ideas, planning projects, meeting other exceptional individuals, exploring their interests and pursuing their passions in business and in creativity —— it’s all very stirring. Especially if it includes travelling and cross-country (even better if it’s cross-continental) collaboration. I can literally spend all day just browsing and taking these bits of inspiration in, it’s practically a never-ending discovery which I enjoy so very thoroughly.
CL. But of course. The very first Korean artist to be featured in Billboard’s A Day in the Life series —— a brilliant concept, if you ask me. Spending the day with the likes of Jeremy Scott, of whom she’s a close friend and muse to, and Terry Richardson, the godfather of all contemporary —— and provocative —— high-profile photographers (it just has a certain ring to it, although it isn’t actually far from the truth), just to name a few.
And the Ultrabook Project featuring will.i.am, whose exciting journey around the world is documented as he travels from country to country, continent to continent, collaborating with both local and international names alike to create new music inspired by the beautiful cities and their citizens. To be honest, I do disagree with his questionable actions as of late, but I still do think he’s a very talented individual. Two of my favourites,
Part of why I love all this so much is because I like tearing walls down and building bridges in their places, bringing individuals of different backgrounds and cultures together because I strongly support and enjoy worldly, eclectic diversity —— I think it gives such flavour in so many different aspects —— and I believe everyone has a story to share, something amazing to bring to the table where everyone feasts together, as a community and as a family. So it’s absolutely heartwarming to come across instances and happenings like these.
