Description

43 x 43” Dyed with fustic wood + organic indigo. Hand quilted. According to scientific research there are three different types of tears humans produce— Basal, Reflex, and Emotional, and each have their own special combination of enzymes. The combo that make up emotional tears are helpful for regulating the body and bringing it back to a homeostatic level. This piece represents the abstract and wishful notion that if we all cried at once it would balance out all the hurt of our home, both to our bodies and to our earth.
