Very interesting Project by Lucy McRae and Bart Hess.

"When we speak of other creative mediums influencing the work of designers, the outcome is usually very definitely clothing but with clear hints to the inspiration behind it, be it architecture or sculpture for example. But what happens when art is influenced by other mediums such as fashion? The outcome can't ever be certain.
Lucy McRae and Bart Hess have collaborated on a project called
LucyandBart where they explore their "fascination with genetic manipulation and beauty expression". They say their work is not conscientiously influenced by fashion, architecture or performance, but is more "instinctual". Whatever they set out to do, be it unconscious or not, the results are all at once fascinating and unnerving." Queen Michelle
