Why should I be sad? consists of 275 images collated from the Instagram account of pop singer Britney Spears, printed on adhesive vinyl and applied directly to the wall. Since joining the platform in 2011, the singer has made a regular habit of posting and reposting motivational content to her 22 million+ followers. Why should I be sad? is titled after a single on her 2007 album Blackout. Released in the same year as her highly-publicised struggles with mental health, the song is about the emotional resilience she discovered during the breakdown of her marriage to dancer Kevin Federline.
