lucy mcrae + mandy smith: chlorophyll skin.

Exploring the evolutionary and mutational possibilities when converging art, science, and the human body, I’ve been a huge fan of the body dysmophic works of Lucy McRae and Bart Hess for quite a while now. See past posts here and here.


For an installation at Amsterdam Fashion Week in July, McRae teamed up with Mandy Smith to create “Chlorophyll Skin”, an “experimentation into color, movement, absorption and the body.” The results are eerie; reptilian yet human, familiar yet alien, chromatic yet a little grotesque.

It doesn’t hurt that they’ve set it to Fever Ray’s “When I Grow Up”, a sensational song with an equally sensational video.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
