Five Facts About Tears



Five Facts About Tears is a work I did last semester. It is a video of art performance with five series of speculative wearable installations connecting my real tears. I want to explore the symbolic and hidden meaning behind “tears” and present them through objects in order to pursue the beauty of poetic.

The last piece, I create a tears sensor. The material on my face is the conductive tape which links with the speaker on my mouth. When I cry, the circuit completes. So the speaker will play the sound of infant cry.

Tears can be cooled.
Tears can be eaten.
Tears can be fake.
Tears can influence vision.
Tears finally can be a life song.
