A personal project exploring why being called a crybaby was so offensive to me growing up, when crying became a sign of strength rather than weakness, and why the hell I cry so much.  Growing up, I was called a crybaby more times than I would like to admit. This project explores crying from several angles. Throughout the course of ~6 months I created a set of 5 books and a playlist, each tackling a different side of crying. The books include a study on the science of crying and tears, a log of each time I cried throughout the duration of the project, a collaborative playlist of songs that make people cry, a book of interviews with family members, an experimental book detailing my personal frustrations with crying, and a ”book” printed as a pack of tissues detailing the time in my life that I recall crying the hardest.

Check out the playlist and have a good cry.
