Science-fiction artist and speculative designer Lucy McRae occupies a unique space in her field. Taking the body as her central focus, she explores how human biology might evolve with the assistance of design, emotional reconditioning, molecular biology and technology. These concerns are presented through the medium of video, photography and installation.

This volume includes an interview by the NGV’s Simone LeAmon, The Hugh Williamson Curator of Contemporary Design and Architecture, and an adjunct professor in the School of Design, RMIT University, Melbourne; and texts by Dr Adam Nash, Associate Dean of Digital Design at RMIT University’s School of Design; and Dr Bronwyn Lovell a science-fiction poet and scholar.
