Random Acts of Kindness

Drawing inspiration from Dune and Raby’s Huggable Atomic Mushrooms, this project explores our relationship with the bathroom scale. Some are obsessed, yet some fear standing on it.

As beauty is socially derived, the concept of what is seen as beautiful is always changing and cannot be measured. It is unfortunate that we live in a society that is quick to judge and difficult to please. Through the interaction, these bathroom scales hope to amuse, but at the same time, alter one’s experience with the weighing of one’s self.
