British-Australian Lucy McRae is an artist, filmmaker, and inventor, and much of her craft is underpinned by a science fiction theme. She devised the term “body architect” to describe her artistic method, which combines art, science and technology to speculate on the future of human existence and the ways our bodies can be enhanced or redesigned. We asked Lucy to lay out the six core rules of her creative process, which included becoming comfortable with uncertainty and looking for inspiration in science rather than fiction. She’s exhibited at MIT, NASA, Centre Pompidou, and the Venice Biennale, given talks for TED, and is recognised as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
“Creativity for me is exploring the unknown, untrodden paths.”
