Chlorophyll Skin

is a collaborative project by Lucy McRae and Mandy Smith and is an experiment into color, movement, absorption and the body. The video alludes to an architectural bioengineering of the body withe aid of a color dyed harmless chemical.

"Chlorophyll is considered a powerful plant food source with numerous health benefits.  In short, it enables the body to rid itself of bacterial growth that can cause body odor and bad breath.  It is believed to boost the immune system and promote a healthy digestive tract. Chlorophyll is often included in breath mints, gums and mouthwashes because of its breath freshening properties." Source

According to Lucy McRae, she straddles the world of fashion, technology and the body, and since having been trained as a classical ballerina and an architect, and with this video she now appears to have begun creating media art.
