The structure of emotions, the topography of tears
Contemporary Art | Rose-Lynn Fisher photographs dried tears. She has collected over a hundred samples.
Under the microscope, the American artists examines samples and discovers three different types of tears with different crystalline structures : psychological tears of joy or sorrow, basic tears that guarantee the eyés humidity and tears of irritation in response to dust. These aerial views constitute a landscape of our innermost being.
Theses black and white photographs are situated between science and art; following in the tradition of German photographer Karl Blossfeld who discerned, through a repertory of six thousand photographs of vegetables, a universal model for abstract structures : « Urformen der Kunst » (art prototypes). The surprising angles of Rose-Lynn Fisher’s microscopic photographs reveal arborescent structures, architectural blocks and networks, while simultaneously showing how mankind is part of these living structures.
