It’s Human To Cry and It’s Okay To Cry are two videos, which is a part of a bigger project called Cry. It is a project that deals with how the world looks when one would imagine how it looks. Mankind’s relation with grief and grief processes are explored. The audience is invited to embrace the weeping and reflect over the mourning, which according to Riisager is what fundamentally makes us human. Grief is at the same time a natural consequence of being a human in a globalised society. The audience is made to be part of the ambiguous dynamic between seeing and being seen.
