On the collinear and reflected on the water
(2018/ Video/ 4 min/ The work also can be shown in loop playback)

Hayama recounts a strangely intimate encounter with an emu against the tremulous backdrop of projected and re-photographed film footage showing the aforementioned bird behind bars at the zoo. As Hayama filmed the emu, she noticed a tear dropping from the corner of its eye and was inspired to make this film. Even if this teardrop represented nothing more than a physiological function designed to remove dust from the emu’s eye, it somehow fascinates the human mind.
