Imaginarium of tears Small exhibition

Every tear has a hidden story. Tears are small droplets of fluid, but at the same time complex vials of human emotion produced by one of the most basic expressions of our feelings and thoughts: crying. In 2015 photographer Maurice Mikkers started on a quest to turn tears into works of art, which resulted in the Imaginarium of Tears. He collects tears, crystalizes them and takes photos underneath a microscope. Visitors of the SG-lecture or the exhibition can get a tear collection kit to produce their basic, reflex or emotional tears. Surprisingly, every tear is different.
