Crying Helps Me Understand


Project for Stefan Sagmeister’s Class: Can Design Touch Someone’s Heart

Theme ‘Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far’.

We were asked to design a sentence that described something we have learned.
My sentence was ‘Crying helps me understand’.

A series of photographs that relate to the process of crying.
Image 1: ‘Crying’ written on tongue with salt

Image 2: ‘Helps Me’ formed by the blood vessels inside the glottis. (The glottis is the part of your airways that opens up when you cry or are under stress so when you try to swallow it makes you feel like you have a lump in your throat)

Image 3: ‘Understand’ Smeared on arm with mascara, eyeliner and, ofcourse, tears.
