No More Tears

Using the teardrop emoticon in a repeated and rhythmic way this installation is tribute and acknowledgment to all the tears that are cried when a personal relationship ends. Tears are shed in a physical manner as a release of emotions, but often they are shed online too. The use of both happy/pink and sad/blue tears symbolises the way one can feel both simultaneous relief and devastation that a relationship has ended – romantic or otherwise. The chaos that often ensues after a break up can be disorientating and the release of tears can often help provide clarity and emotional disposal of what was.
