Produced in partnership by Science Gallery Melbourne and State Library Victoria

Join renowned science fiction artist, filmmaker, inventor and body architect Lucy McRae as she discusses transdisciplinary collisions between art, architecture, design and technology as a way to explore speculative futures in culture and society. Lucy will be joined by computer-human interaction researcher Dr Niels Wouters, who developed the research behind the project Biometric Mirror, to reflect upon the imperfections of artificial intelligence.


Biometric Mirror is a sci-fi installation at the State Library of Victoria 25th -30th September as part of Science Gallery Melbourne’s PERFECTION exhibition 

Lucy McRae’s work speculates on the future of human existence by exploring the limits of the body, beauty, biotechnology and the self. She has exhibited at Science Museum London, Centre Pompidou and the Venice Biennale, developing work alongside MIT,  Ars Electronica and NASA. Regarded as a pioneer who blurs the boundaries across art, architecture, design and technology, Lucy has a healthy disregard for labels that limit transdisciplinary practice.
