The Biological bakery

28th January 2014

Having been quiet for a while Lucy McRae has just premiered her latest materials/meets fantasy/meets/future laboratory in collaboration with Rachel Wingfield.

Titled 'The Biological Bakery' they have created a series of weird and wonderful bio fab lab machines for the music video for Australian band Architecture In Helsinki. Titled:Dream A Little Crazy, minaturised band members are made into edible delicacies and proposes a world where
Willy Wonka meets synthetic biology.

Collaborating for the first time Lucy and Rachel both explore science and fiction in new and fantastical ways and their combined energy and curious minds is truly manifested in this promo. Showcased as part of
Protein x C4 Random Acts: last night, Dream A Little Crazy it is worth a watch.



Today Lucy sent me a link to the behind the scenes making of which is worth a watch too to see how bricollage, simple and engaging her process is.
