The Topography of Tears: Rose-Lynn Fisher

Click on the title for this beautiful and fascinating project by Rose-Lynn, mapping the microscopic structures of her tears and noticing that – like each snowflake – each tear differs. Tears of laughter and tears of grief are different landscapes. She has mapped 100 tears in her study, and is working towards a book. Her project sits in that rousing, exhilarating place where art and science follow a bend in the road, and meet….

This feels person-centred in essence, a journey into depth realities; the shifting, subtle, living meanings beneath apparent surfaces – a vision of the unique poetic unfolding that exists behind the categories, labels and stories we assign to our experience, for those of us who go looking.

Thank you to Becky W for showing us this.
