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 toÂ explore speculative futures in culture and society. Lucy will be joined by computer-human interaction researcherÂ Dr Niels Wouters, who developed the research behind the projectÂ Biometric Mirror, to reflect upon the imperfections of artificialÂ intelligence.
Biometric MirrorÂ is a sci-fi installation at the State Library of Victoria 25thÂ -30thÂ September as part of Science Gallery Melbourneâ€™s PERFECTION exhibitionÂ
Lucy McRaeâ€™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 alongsideÂ MIT,Â 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.
