Health, human adaptability and Science Fiction

Lucy McRae (UK)

Lucy McRae will use samples of work that use storytelling as a medium to merge the health, science, entertainment and biotechnology markets. Rooted in evidence based research, outcomes of her artworks are often products, public engagement projects, film, symposia and workshops.
An example of her storytelling is Lucy’s Swallowable Parfum that reached an audience of over 2 million views in its first two days, demonstrating the power speculative design has on the willingness of a public and media to engage.

Exploring the surreal and unpredictable is a rich ground and gateway to innovation”.

Lucy attempts to create personal, immersive and vulnerable experiences that engage audiences in ways they have not experienced before; pro-longing a sense of wonder and speculation.
Connecting science with the imagination, she is listed by Fast Company as one of the leading women shaping the future and will speak at this year’s WIRED Health event.
