Lucy McRae

body artist (UK/AUS)

Lucy McRae is a sci-fi artist, film director, TED Fellow and body architect, placing the human body in complex, futuristic scenarios that confound the boundaries between the natural and artificial; inventing iconic artworks that take people beyond the expectations of themselves. Trained in classical ballet and interior design, her approach is to influence culture by exploring scientific breakthroughs relating to health and the human body, while providing a feminine point of view on emerging technology. McRae is a TED Fellow, inventor of the Swallowable Parfum and has spoken at WIRED Health, Royal Albert Hall, London’s College of Physicians, Tribeca, Cannes Lion and most recently at MIT’s Being Material conference in 2017. McRae encourages scientific conversation around the slipperiness of where science and technology meet the body, throwing into question “What makes us Human”?
