Join The University of Texas School of Architecture with Lucy McRae, artist, filmmaker, and body architect from Los Angeles, for a lecture on “Story As Future Survival” live-streamed on the Texas Architecture YouTube channel.
A pioneer blurring the boundaries across art, architecture, technology, and design, British-born Australian Lucy McRae has a finely tuned ability to imagine other ways of being and, crucially, other possibilities for how human biology might be augmented by a mixture of physical design, modification of genes, and emotions. Examining the way science is transforming the body, McRae’s prophetic aesthetic is flung far from archetypal tropes – creating nostalgia for a future about to happen – using art as a mechanism to signal and provoke our ideologies and ethics about who we are and where we are headed. McRae has worked with several global scientific and cultural organizations and institutions including MIT, Ars Electronica, NASA, TED, Cannes, and Tribeca Film Festival, with selected major artworks exhibited at Venice Architecture Biennale, Science Museum London, Centre Pompidou, and the Triennale Milano. McRae is a visiting professor at SCIArc in Los Angeles and is recognized as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
