Some days you’re the clown
Some days you’re the clown, by Eva Francis-Work is a mixed media exhibition designed to combine digital and physical art works. The exhibition works through ideas of opposition, femininity, self-expression, and identity while appropriating themes and imagery from the circus arts. In a type of digital magic trick, a series of prints act as triggers for augmented reality (AR) sculptures, each featuring a circus character revealing a different aspect of the artist. Some day you're the clown is available on the Shared Spaces app on the Spaces page.
