LUCYANDBART

24 September 2008

lucyandbart.jpg

LucyandBart is a collaboration between Lucy McRae and Bart Hess described as an instinctual stalking of fashion, architecture, performance and the body. They share a fascination with genetic manipulation and beauty expression. Unconsciously their work touches upon these themes, however it is not their intention to communicate this. They work in a primitive and limitless way creating future human shapes, blindly discovering low – tech prosthetic ways for human enhancement.

Their work is inspiring in that it shares a completely organic vision still accessible through a pretty package… so to speak. Take a look at the links and you will not be disappointed.

Advanced Style

If this blog was a 70 year old woman or man, would it have as much style as these people? It should hope so.

The masthead on Advanced Style says it all: “Proof from the wizened and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age.”
