The Topography Of Tears

tears of ending and beginningWhat do human tears look like under the microscope? Rather beautiful, actually.

Rose-Lynn Fisher has created a wondrous mix of science and art, by looking at her tears through a microscope. The results appear like aerial shots of Earth, with rivers, roads, cities, fields, and forests all being represented by water, proteins, minerals, hormones, antibodies, and enzymes. They combine together to form a momentary landscape of emotions, which is mesmerising to look at.

I love the sense of scale of these images, and how the micro scale mimics the macro scale. The diversity of images is also great, with different types of tears appearing to give a different result.

So head on over to Rose-Lynn Fisher‘s site, and marvel at her tears. Onwards.
