SENT: Adam Chau at The Clay Studio
June 25 – August 2, 2020
SENT examines queer culture in digital spaces. With the ubiquitous shape on a smartphone, Adam Chau presents a mosaic of the paradoxical anonymous selfie. Using traditional blue-and-white aesthetics, Adam utilizes digital fabrication methods to make commentary on the intersections of the physical and virtual.
