My name is Chelsea Southard.
That’s my bike next to me, her name is The Phoenix.
We ride the world together building art, sharing story,
creating relationships, pushing borders
and inspiring others.
Unus Mundus is latin for “one world”, but the story behind the phrase stretches much further than its translation. It was popularized by Carl Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, and it is the concept of an underlying unified reality, from which everything emerges and to which everything returns. This concept directly relates to what Jung coined as, synchronicity or ¨meaningful coincidence¨, the Unus Mundus is the source from which the power of synchronicity is born.
I believe in the transformative power of creative collaboration
To bridge division and grow connection through shared experience
By creating art and providing a platform for the world’s artisans to share their craft and story
I seek to synchronize art, travel, and exchange through my adventure
So I can help tell the greater narrative of our one world
Unus Mundus Project grew from my desire to continue creating while at the same time moving though the world, you can take an artist out of their studio but then they must find a way to make the world their studio. This journey is not simply a travel excursion, it is a lifestyle from which I plan to build the foundation for the rest of my life.
