Create Your Own Reality (CYOR) is an interactive art show. It summaries the projects of HALT CREATION in the years of 2018-2019-2020, a series of deep introspections on the integration of social media in our lives and social conflicts in the globe. The core idea of this interactive art show is its interactive nature. During the events, not only the audience can visually see the artworks, but can also contribute to the artwork, adding their own unique touch to its final form.
Organized by Wilhelm(Haojiang) Li.
The theme of the art show is the integration of social media in our lives and culture diversity. There are fun interactive activities such as mural painting and origami constructions for students. During that week, there will be also interesting sculptures created for CYOR.
