Morphe

21st September 2012

The wonderful Aēsop has recently commissioned Lucy McRae the design alchemist to create a short film which is titled ‘Morphē.

Using McRae's design sensibility for creating beautiful and intriguing visuals the film explores the aesthetics of a laboratory and the alchemic experiments through colour and texture.

inspired by the nineteenth-century scientist Hermann von Helmholtz where ‘Everything’, wrote Helmholtz, ‘is an event on the skin’. ‘At the edge of this world, the skin and hair play key roles for the female specimen fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of a new kind of super-sensory beauty treatment.'
