In their own words, SadBois stated, “We wanted to create a body of work that looks to take the complex emotion of loneliness and describe the human experience almost ironically by making a collaborative body of work regarding an emotion that can make one feel isolated. Instead of explaining the internalization of loneliness, we wanted to capture how this emotion can be a shared experience but still show the vast range of how the emotion can present itself, there are times where loneliness can be empowering and there are times where it can be saddening but these times help shape who we are and who we can become.”
