Have you ever wondered what your tears look like under a microscope? Artist Rose-Lynn Fischer had the same query and set out to capture close-up images of teardrops. Rose-Lynn was fascinated by what she saw under the microscope. After looking at the first magnified tear, she began to wonder - do tears of joy look the same as tears of sorrow under a microscope? This began a project in which she captured, studied and photographed 100 tears under an optical microscope.
As you look at the images, you'll notice that different emotions do in fact create different structures within the tears.
In the process of collecting and examining more and more tears, Rose-Lynn couldn't help but think that she was looking at what she calls, "aerial views of emotional terrain." It's incredible how nature creates similar patterns, whether you're examining human tears under a microscope or looking out an airplane window at the earth below.
Rose-Lynn's art is reminiscent of the work done by Masaru Emoto. Emoto froze water, photographed it, and studied how words spoken to it, music played to it, prayer, and source location affected the water's crystalline structure. In his discoveries, it appeared that more beneficial words and actions created beautiful and harmonic structures, whereas harsh words produced chaotic structures.
