SAD SELFIES ZINE
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
A selfie of you crying
+ one sentence explanation of why you were crying
+ first name / pseudonym
to SADSELFIES AT GMAIL DOT COM
or through the Sad Selfies Zine tumblr
Please share on whatever social media if you’re into it. (We are on twitter @sadselfies/ #sadselfieszine)
N.B: The purpose of this is in no way to make light of depression or mock sadness. Crying is something that is often very secret but people usually take selfies when they feel good about themselves / selfies are a very public act - If you’re willing to take part I think it could prove to be a very striking juxtaposition and shared expression of vulnerability: It’s so rare to witness each other crying. Happy to talk more about it at the e-mail above.xo
“A loop after a loop. Hour after hour my madness becomes crochet. Life and art are inseparable. The movies I watch while crocheting influence my work, and my work dictates the films I select. I crochet everything that enters my space. Sometimes it’s a text message, a medical report, found objects. There is the unraveling, the ephemeral part of my work that never lets me forget about the limited life of the art object and art concept.” - Olek

I am a positive person but I get really tired of aggressive optimism. If someone’s sad, let them be sad. All emotions have purpose. Sadness isn’t destructive if not prolonged. Sadness isn’t unproductive, as it offers awareness. Telling someone to “cheer up” or “be happy” is so ineffective and patronizing. The last thing a sad person needs is for someone to judge their feelings as pointless and unappealing. Welcome sadness, just don’t let it consume you.

everyone has said and done problematic things in their lifetime. that’s a result of the society we live in, not necessarily a reflection of their character.
what is a reflection of their character is how they react to being informed of the negativity within their behavior and statements, and whether or not they choose to change their behavior.
sunshineshrine asked: do you know where i can get one of those patches, the ones that say things like "ghoul guides", "pizza princess" etc.?
Those patches are actually made by the lovely Hanecdote :)
