Cry Baby




A sharing of research 

                        ‘A tear is an intellectual thing’ – Jerome Neu


We are both criers. We cry all the time. We frequently cry over nothing at all. As a result, we often find ourselves being categorized into the ‘oversentimental’, ‘hysterical’, ‘emotionally unstable’ and ‘manipulative’. Cry Baby is a sharing of research into our new project centered around the phenomenology of tears. In this sharing, we explore the social mechanism related to public displays of emotional tears.
