Kaori Seki's new work "water and tears" was begun and developed through residencies in Chicago, Burlington, Austin and Kobe. "water and tears" has been built in a year marked by personal, familial losses. It imagines a time before the division between the self and the other and asks whether or not "I regard what lies in front of my eyes as also 'me'". Offering a radical and weighted perspective of togetherness, Seki comforts our fears of loss and other, reminding us that we are the same though the waters in our bodies, and we are the same through the tears on our faces.
