The walk of hell....

Imagine walking over this floor tiled with bathroom scales:
It's part of the "Dangerous Beauty exhibition in the Chelsea Art Museum in New York, which challenges society's view of beauty. In the press notes there is the startling statement that, in the US, more money is spent on cosmetics than education, with more than two million cosmetic surgery procedures performed last year. Ho hum.
(nb the exhibit above is by Jacob Dahlgren, and is called Heaven is a Place on Earth)

And my writing prompt (yep, I'm back to these) is: A different sort of beauty
