Per the site, “Shocks to the system do us good. They wake us up, they change the course of history, and they disrupt the norm. Unexpected moments open our minds to new ideas. Uncomfortable pieces of art challenge our perceptions of what we think is right.
“This October, we’re celebrating Shock in 128 cities around the world. The theme was chosen by our Jeju chapter and illustrated by Yeji Yun, who also hails from South Korea.
“Get ready to be rocked out of your comfort zone!”
