"… SAIL AWAY considered connections through travel, trade, mapping, personal and social histories. The materials used represent the unknown links we have with the past and each other, connecting us to all of the people who have handled the materials in the past. Boats are often symbolic of the transition from the material to the spiritual world, acting as carriers for our dreams, vessels for our adventures."
We have a jar overflowing with coins, a wallet stuffed of bills, and a wall covered in train, subway, and bus tickets collected from our RAD AND HUNGRY Sourcing Trips. Sail Away makes me wanna turn our office into one big interactive exhibit.
The excitement of adding a pin to the RAH World Tour map never wears off. We made the pins with colored tape, neon labels, and sewing pins. Red for our 1st World Tour, orange for the 2nd, and green for the 3rd.
And although we super love our map from Knock, we so badly want the World Map designed by Oliver Jeffers. Are two maps overkill? Do you have a world map that records where you’ve visited?
This year we added 7 countries new to the RAH World Tour and now it’s time to plan our 4th World Tour! Wanna join us?
We have a lot of Spanish phrase books at RAH HQ – Mexican Spanish, Costa Rican Spanish, Spain Spanish…. And growing up I learned that my Korean was “country” and not spoken in Seoul. Have you ever wondered if you have an American accent? Or if words you use are regional?
