Abigail is born to create

image10 This week's #BTC is a blogger who is determined to provide a voice for others through her own. Abigail Rayson started up My Girls Tour with ambitions to create a platform for the young community to express and engage in multiple facets of life.

Despite the under 21s having a love for travel, and the majority being in full-time education, I feel that young adults are being made to choose between entertainment and information. But why should we? After all, the trends and styles that we are learning about and wearing, were they not originally created by new fresh minds? Are they not some of the best emerging artists, researchers and professionals fresh out of college? Why, as vibrant multi-faceted demographic, are we taught to seperate culture from fun and careers from creativity?

The content on My Girls Tour is all original. Abigail uses herself and her life as the subject matter and explains that in many aspects it becomes "a subconscious performance". She allows for the environment in which she places herself, to constantly change, but makes sure that she remains the same - true to her mission.

What Are You Chasing?

Thoughtfully Passionate

Picking up from where we left off - talking about contemplation and creative thinking. I've had the honor to accompany our StreetRacer producer, WajuBeats on a journey through Philadelphia's Academy of Art, a place for inspiration and beauty. Entering the building is like stepping into a cocoon of talent, and it is easy soak up the vibe and walk away feeling artfully rejuvenated.

New ideas are constantly being sparked. Currently we have a few projects up our sleeves, surprises for you to absorb what you see and hear in new ways. Consider how music influences your life, how it intensifies your emotions, and alters what your see. How do you consume your environment with your earphones in, blasting your favorite song? We are in a state of toying with this idea...share with us your thoughts!

We absolutely love the combination of music and modern art. Have you ever heard of Isa Genzken? Most people probably haven't, but listen up, because this German artist is one of very few females to have her first retrospective at the MoMa in New York. She explores elements of audio using photography and sculpture in a way I've never seen before. As I did my research on Isa, I learnt that she is not your ordinary sculptor...her fascination with New York's architecture has transcended into multiple works of urban, expressive, and quite explosive bodies of art. We absolutely love her raw style, making all of us question what "good" taste in the vast world of the arts actually is. What do you think good taste is? And how do you feel about her portrayal and interpretation of New York City?
