TEARS

What is the smell of sadness? What is the colour of tears? The act of crying, a behaviour that is always conveyed as a sign of weakness, might be our strongest attribute. But what is the significance of tears? Through this piece, I wanted to convey an emotion that represents the times we are living in. Weaving a narrative that speaks to the nature of who we are as a humanity. 

 That it is okay to feel sadness, to feel tears running through our face. Through sadness, we are able to reflect on ourselves and that in the end, we are human. Sadness isn’t a problem but rather a consideration to act.
