The Structure Of Liquid Water Novel Insights From Materials Research and its Potential Relevance To Homeopathy. By Ruth Le Gear
artist currently staying in Berlin with culturia programme http://culturia.de/ruth-le-gear/
I need people to collect tears for a number of experiments; happy tears, sad tears, tears of grief and joy. If you wish to donate your tears please contact me at ruthlegear @ gmail.com and I will send you a tear collecting package
Deadline to sign is March 10th and to send the tears back by March 30th.
Part of my practice explores water and homeopathy and the intersections where this exploration becomes a synesthaesic metaphor within a formal artistic framework.
I intend to collect experience, creating aesthetic metaphors, making the intangible tangible. This concept will be explored for my part through different media, sound, photography, video installation and archival documentation.
Intrigued by the emotional content of a tear, an ongoing element of my work involves the systematic collecting of tears from the public, making an homeopathic remedy from the collected tears; as each tear is a like a snowflake has its own unique fingerprint. This project was started during my degree, from research into water memory in the form of an installation ‘Teardrops in Wonderscape’. I am now exploring this in other directions; One is with a chemistry department and the other is with a homeopath.
The remedies will be made as visual artwork and then given as a homeopathic remedy within the homeopathic framework. The entire process - from tritration to proving - will be documented, as well as work created from the research. The project will culminate in an installation and book.
It will be anonymous, you can include a note about your tears if you wish but there will be no published details about your tears; pain or joy.
