Exploring the Evolution of the Urban Nomad

"When the sun shines in NYC, the nomads come out to play. This isn't their first rodeo and the girls showed up with armfuls of flowers, beach blankets, wine and heart filled curiosity. They came adorned in silk and color and attitude. It was their urban playground to roam and linger at will. Taking charge of their desire to be free, they rode with the wind, letting it pick up any constraints with abandon. This wasn't a time for uncertainty or boundaries, for their reckless hunger for living pierced luminous in their eyes.

This is the way of the Urban Nomad."

–Lyn Girdler

Where can you find them, but hidden deep within city walls, in nooks and crannies, discovering materials and cityscapes, urban worlds, often trying to escape beyond these built up limits to a world free of barriers and constraints. The Urban Nomad is someone on a constant journey, beyond the mundane, always learning and reaching for more. Whether it’s where they eat, dream, travel, explore, or what they listen to, read, write, or love, they are always seeking a path that leads them on a voyage of self-discovery and insight into the world.

The Urban Nomad is someone who originates back to the early nineteenth century, in Revolutionary Paris, a time of artistic discovery and creation. The beginning of a series of movements through time, when young artists believed their lives should be devoted to the uncovering of truths and beauty in the world as a means of finding love and freedom. This was done through artistic methods such as music, writing, and painting. Through the eras, the movements evolved, but never disappeared, and in the modern world, these themes of truth, beauty, love and free spirit, remain in the eyes of the Urban Nomad. 

Intrigued by the idea of the unknown, this Urban Nomad, the Modern Bohemian, finds delight and fascination, in their journey off the beaten track. Funky downtown art shows, museum exhibitions, or the last row of books in a dusty, old bookstore is where these souls can be found, constantly longing for more, and searching for the next opportunity to escape.

Always on the run from the mundane, with an appetite for adventure, the Urban Nomad seeks shelter in vast explorations and discovery, and comfort knowing there’s always a road home.
