Body Architecture by Lucy & Bart

Another perspective can of course be found in the “absurd” human enhancement works of LucyandBart (Lucy McRae and Bart Hess) that is often described as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body.

Both share a fascination with genetic manipulation and beauty expression, creating future human shapes, blindly discovering low – tech prosthetic ways for human enhancement.

As a body Architects they invent and build structures on the skin that re-shape the human silhouette. Their provocative, often grotesquely beautiful imagery suggest a new breed; a future human archetype existing in an alternate world. Visualized in scenarios which let the human body perform as an intimate interface with the material world.
