From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The original source of the Sadbox character is most likely the art show "SadBox a Human Metaphor" by Joel David Waldrep [1]. "Essentially it's a metaphor for human beings and the fragments of information we collect," Waldrep said. "We can collect or empty ourselves of things - anything to make ourselves feel full and worthy of something."

Waldrep's work must have struck a chord inspiring the creation of the sadbox character on twitter [2]. Which in turn sparked a minor Internet phenomenon. The sadbox of twitter fame is a comedian who clearly uses the venue as a place to collect sadbox artifacts from around the web.

Most sadbox characters are created by flipping an Amazon.com box upside down and completing the missing face.

The phenomena of sadboxing [3] is the technique of placing objects that cause feelings of sadness into a box and disposing of the box in some manner.
