My practice resonates with healing techniques through water, involving vials of water essences, and the inversely proportionate strengths and values of healing. ‘Teardrops in Wonderscape (2008)’ was my starting point, exploring how a drop of water has the capacity to hold the memory of a substance that has passed through it. The investigation of this notion of water as a conductor of memory has led to an interest in homeopathy. Intrigued by the emotional content of a tear, I began collecting tears from the public to make a homeopathic remedy. Each tear, like a snowflake, has its own unique structure.
I placed this remedy in the 3500 suspended tear collecting vials which you lie beneath in the installation. These tears should fall upon you, as the vials are suspended upside down with just surface tension holding the liquid in the vials as if frozen.
