The Stuff Of Nightmares - The Scale

DEBATE: The Scale (The Stuff Of Nightmares, Readymade, 2019)

Many of us struggle with our weight and the way we perceive it – I sure do. I was trying to imagine a way in which I could express the way that I feel about it and I created this piece entitled “The Scale”. Looking at the piece, I begin to think the way I view my body is wrong. But why then do I do it?

 

I want to reach out to people and see what they feel when they see this:

The Stuff Of Nightmares - The Scale

It’s a scale that no matter what you actually weight is, it will always tell you you’re fat. For as long as I can remember, this is the way I’ve felt, regardless if it was true or not.

So I put it to you. How does the scale make you feel? Is it funny, cruel or is it shocking or thought-provoking?
