Creative Arts Graduation Show 2020

Variations (異色流) of the graduation show is the homophone of stream of consciousness, a unique narrating style in literature. Stream of consciousness emphasizes the form of expression, with no boundary of time nor space, it removes limitations from creativity. The graduates wish to express themselves in their artworks without boundaries.


Consciousness forms thoughts, thoughts join to form the river of creation. “Stream” represents the ever-changing art concepts, like flowing water. On top of that, there are distinct colors and styles in the stream of art. It embodies the desire of the creators for extraordinary.


Creative arts live in every heart, everyone has different values and ways of life. This year’s graduates of creative arts break out of their frames and their comfort zones. All the artworks are the fruition of the past 4 years of study, representing their minds and consciousness atypical of the mainstream.
