The following video was taken during the center of The Blood Sweat and Tears Trilogy, Tears. Tears is a physical meditation on the ritual, reality, and most significantly material of crying. Performing atop latex coated in salt, the artist enacts a series of external and internal mechanisms, to conjure up both Psychic (brought on by emotions) and Reflex (result by irritation) tears. In this excerpt we see the artist gaze out at the audience to elicit emotional tears. Then with a gapping mouth,rub against the salt and latex surface, and begin to cut onions to trigger a reflex response.
