I had to smile when I came across Sena Arcak’s installation Scale Room/These Scales are Correct. I would imagine this would be many people’s worst nightmare.
The Istanbul based artist installed eighty-four bathroom scales on the floor of a 6-meter square room. The scales act as tiles making up the floor. Love it.
From the artist:
The idea of producing this project emerged as a reaction to the societal pressure that is induced by a constant flow of images of thin women in print and digital media. But more than that, I feel much more troubled by the competitive and judgmental pressure imposed on each other by women.
Also part of the Scale Series is Just, only (three bottom photos) displaying a pair of armless hands pressing down on a scale.
