Make Your Maker

Make Your Maker takes genetic engineering to the extreme, depicting a world where technology is liquid and the human body is cloned to the point of a food source.

Food and Body Inseparable – Make Your Maker takes the concept of genetic manipulation to extreme; where gender and ego are blended like a chef makes a cake and human edible clones are consumed for sensory enhancement. The deliberate modification of life led Lucy to question her own genetic make up; “What if we could choose our own human traits; or if our parents could choose what they give us?”

 

Assembling the body from scratch in the kitchen where technology and biology merge, may seem absurd – But its important to hover the imagination and discuss how scientific breakthroughs are slowly reconstructing the body. 

 
 
 

McRae (the protagonist) moves through a series of sensory chambers spending time in an anechoic chamber examining the psychoacoustics of silence or in a self–invented microgravity trainer conditioning the body for possible life in space. These fictional locations explore whether the design of isolation into buildings could play a role in advancing human biology on an evolutionary scale.
