Lucy Mcrae portrait
Design Studio, Visiting Faculty

Lucy McRae is a science fiction artist, filmmaker, inventor, and body architect. Her work speculates on the future of human existence by exploring the limits of the body, beauty, biotechnology, and the self. McRae works across installation, film, photography, artificial intelligence, and edible technology. She is regarded as a thought leader who is exploring the cultural and emotional impacts science and cutting edge technology have on redesigning the body. Lucy uses art as a mechanism to signal and provoke our ideologies and ethics about who we are and where we are headed.

McRae has exhibited at museums, film festivals, institutes such as MIT, Ars Electronica, NASA, and science forums across the world. Selected major artworks have been exhibited at Science Museum London, Centre Pompidou, and the Venice Biennale. She is a visiting professor at SCI_Arc in Los Angeles; and is recognised as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. McRae encourages scientific conversation and has spoken at TED, Royal Albert Hall, Cannes Lion, and Tribeca Film Festival. She is regarded as a pioneer who blurs the boundaries across art, architecture, design and technology with a healthy disregard for labels that limit interdisciplinary practice.
