What I initially imagined when writing 'Clown Puppet' was the concept of a clown, attached to strings like a puppet and being made to dance. It begins with a slow awakening as the clown gradually comes to life. It is uncertain whether the clown is happy or sad to be dancing against its will, as the clown's face remains emotionless throughout.
