1 year ago I was completely disconnected, upset by the election, stagnant in my career, isolated and frustrated. So I took a handful of hearts to Art Basel in Miami, Havana and Mexico City and all of those things changed.
I don’t know who this person is, but we had just met seconds before, she was selling tickets to @satelliteartshow... about 5 minutes later I met the legend @jasondereknorth who enabled me to show at @satelliteartshow this year. I gave him a heart sticker also. 🙏🏼
Sometimes...sometimes guys, a little heart can change ya life. ⚡️B-B-B-B-Big love from a small man. I love you all ❤️❤️❤️

On New Years Eve I spent the entire day planning this moment with this person. We gazed into a spinning crystal, shot lasers through it, and asked ourselves what kind of year we wanted to have.

We agreed it would be rad to see beautiful things, meet beautiful people, and make beautiful work. And here we are! Mostly we are walking around this planet in awe. There is so much we don’t know, so much room to grow, so much space to experience.
Checking out nebulas with you is incredible @terencebrasch 🙏🏼👍🏻✨

Sometimes u just can’t process what is happening, ya feel?
In one day I saw two of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen: The Louvre Abu Dhabi, and Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
Having dreams coming true feels good. But sometimes I get derp face when I’m walking through cosmic poetry.
I have said it before and I’ll say it again: this 👏🏼 whole 👏🏼 earth 👏🏼 is 👏🏼 MAGIC 👏🏼 and I would like to see all of it.

Hey Aaron, what’s it like doing creative work in the Gulf?
🇦🇪 🇸🇦 🇪🇬
I can’t stop giving out hearts! I was not expecting this place to magnetize me in the way it has, so much is about to/is happening here, so many incredible moments for our species and the radiant humans that live here. What a time to participate in pan-Arab contemporary art and culture. ❤️

Footage of an Aaron Rayburn in his native habitat. Thank you @motf_ae for installing this nebula for us to play in. YIKES I spent way too much time in here, taken by @terencebrasch 🙏🏼
Contemporary experience design literally makes my heart want to explode. Grab it by the balls!

Whoa! The Museum of the Future @motf_ae and The World Government Summit just blew my brains right out. This was all about where AI is heading us as a species, and guys it was incredible. ✨🇦🇪✨
I’ve been designing spaces for people and brands for years but this, omg. WHAT!? I’m shaking. With inspiration and magnetism and connectivity. Thanks for the recco @iamjoal and for the photo @terencebrasch 🙏🏼🤯

It’s been exactly a month since I left my hometown, my home country, everything I know and all the comforts I had grown accustomed to. 👍🏻
Hanging on for this wild ride, pushing, learning, growing, and becoming more magnetized than I ever thought possible. I feel fully connected, vibrant and clear. This whole planet is magic. ❤️

If you’re an outsider by any measure in many countries you are often met with curiosity. In Indonesia that curiosity feels a lot like warmth and love. I continue to believe that most people are ready to love and be loved in return. Like this wonderful woman who asked for about 50 photos with me, she directed many different poses, continuing to point at my hair and t-shirt. I don’t know her, she’ll never know me probably, but she represents the abundant joy I continue to see in Indonesia. It’s not just directed at me, I can see it how they treat one another. Taking an extended break from cynicism sure feels good!
I love Muslims, Indonesia and all the curious, kind and genuinely connected people I meet here.

Sending all my love on the breeze to you incredible people back home 💨 ❤️ grab some if you need it.
Waking up to roosters and the call to prayer is incredible. All stray cats have broken tails, and I have fallen madly in love with the neighborhood coffee shop that is also a theater.

If you ask your friends to run away with you, and they do, magic rushes in. I swear I cannot get away from rainbows! Thank you for all of your support while I struggle with this 🌈 addiction. Last night was one of the best nights of my life with this guy. Soooooo grateful for intrepid, joyful people. 🙏🏼

This 👏🏼 whole 👏🏼 earth 👏🏼 is 👏🏼 MAGIC.
🇮🇩 This week has been rough and magical, and it’s only Tuesday. I’m uncomfortable, magnetized, out of my element, learning, slightly terrified, vibrating, and alive.
