___This first co-operative project between ‘body architect’ Lucy McRae and artist Mike Pelletier is a machine that redefines the surface of the body. Peristalsis – radial contraction of muscles – is used by earthworms to move and by humans for digestion. The skin in Peristaltic Skin is coated with everyday materials to experiment with motion, mass, liquid and colour. Lucy McRae explores the worlds of fashion, technology and the body. With training as a classical ballet dancer and as an architect she is fascinated by spatial expression of the human body.
Artists: Lucy McRae (NL/AU) / Mike Pelletier (NL)
