I’ve been wanting to do a post on “body architect” Lucy McRae for quite a while after discovering her somewhat creepy metallic skin and safety pin clips that explore the body’s relationship with artificial skins made from found objects. McRae makes her directorial debut in this carefully choreographed music video for the Australian band Rat vs Possum. (via your music today)

Given the design brief, “go into a pound shop and pick a seemingly uninteresting object and rebrand it, increasing the value and interest,” graphic design student Ric Bixter selected elastic bands and created this absolutely killer packaging solution.
