"I'm an honest believer that if businesses, brands or biologists operate more like artistic studios, committed to introducing the creative process at the beginning of any kind of research; you allow for moments of chaos and serendipity that are proven gateways to innovation”.
- Lucy McRae

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.

Absurdity gets us closer to feeling far future

Trained in classical ballet and interior design, Lucy’s 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.

Inventor of Swallowable Parfum, Lucy is recognised as an early identifier of emerging technologies that drive product innovation. Lucy led Philips Electronics far–future research lab, developing stretchable electronics, an electronic tattoo and a range of emotional sensing dresses. She has consulted with companies such as Procter & Gamble, Unilever, Intel and Aesop on the cultural impacts that emerging technologies will have on future lifestyles.

McRae encourages scientific conversation around the slipperiness of where science and technology meet the body, throwing into question “What makes us Human”? She has spoken and taught masterclasses on the impact technology has on human nature at TED, 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’s award-winning science fiction artworks have been developed in collaboration with leading institutes including NASA, MIT and Ars Electronica. Her work has been exhibited at the London Science Museum, Centre Pompidou and the Venice Biennale.
