Live talk with Lucy McRae | Virtual Design Festival | Dezeen

Lucy McRae spoke to Dezeen in a live Screentime conversation as part of our collaboration with her for Virtual Design Festival.

The Australian artist and "body architect" spoke to Dezeen's founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs about her work and gave a preview of one of her most recent projects, the Solitary Survival Raft, which was exclusively revealed as part of Virtual Design Festival.

Based in Los Angeles, McRae's work explores the relationship between technology and the human body, which she uses as a way to speculate on the future.

In an interview with Dezeen from 2019, McRae explained that through her work she looks to "give science fiction an overdue sex change."

Her past projects include a survival kit for a post-apocalyptic future that rejects "the age of the algorithm" and includes comforting items such as cushions and mats.
She's also previously designed a machine that hugs the user as an antidote to what she calls a "touch crisis" brought on by the influx of technology.
