DEBATE: The Stuff Of Nightmares

The Stuff Of Nightmares_Banner

Many of us struggle with our weight and the way we perceive it – I sure do. I was pondering on a way in which I could express the way that I feel about it and ended up creating this piece entitled “The Stuff Of Nightmares” – the title makes sense to me because I 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


It’s a scale that no matter what your size is, it will tell you you’re fat. For as long as I can remember I’ve never paid attention to scales and the KGs they displayed because I was convinced of one thing: I WAS FAT REGARDLESS.

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