Curieuse de savoir à quoi ressemblaient nos larmes vues de très très près, la photographe Rose-Lynn Fisher a un jour décidé de les examiner au microscope. Elle a alors découvert que nos larmes de joie ne ressemblaient ni à nos larmes de douleur ni à nos larmes d'espoir. Et oui : chaque larme a sa composition propre en fonction de nos émotions. Voici un extrait de son projet baptisé The Topography of Tears, également visible sur son site internet.

  1. Des larmes de rire

  2. Des larmes de douleur
  3. Des larmes de quand on épluche un oignon

  4. Des larmes de libération

  5. Des larmes d'espoir

  6. Des larmes d'exaltation

    Tears have different chemical compositions based on the emotions you feel. #funfact I finally decided on a tattoo design inspired by Rose-Lynn Fisher's topography of tears. This particular image is of tears of elation at a liminal moment. I love this one especially because it's a defining image of the joys of change and growth. And uh, it also looks like a deer ??. "Tears are the medium of our most primal language in moments as unrelenting as death, as basic as hunger, and as complex as a rite of passage. They are the evidence of our inner life overflowing its boundaries, spilling over into consciousness. Wordless and spontaneous, they release us to the possibility of realignment, reunion, catharsis: shedding tears, shedding old skin. It’s as though each one of our tears carries a microcosm of the collective human experience, like one drop of an ocean." - R.L.F #roselynnfisher #topographyoftears #tattoo #tattoodesign #deer #forrestcreatures #sciencerules ???
