We meet Lucy McRae, a self-described science fiction artist, filmmaker, and body architect who eventually wants to go to space, exploring how technology and the human body are transcending mediums to create new forms. McRae has collaborated with scientists and synthetic biologists, using their knowledge to inform her experimental works that speculate on the future. A swallowable perfume, for example, muses on how we might soon be able to reprogram our own biology away from disease and aging. In McRae's future-focussed universe, the exosphere is the limit.
