Lucy McRae is the creator of 'The Institute of Isolation' -- a creative short film that considers the importance of design and architecture in preparing for future space survival.

In order to create the piece, Lucy McRae joined with a variety of other designers who helped to make a series of props to be used in the film. The resulting designs allow for humans to train their bodies in a way that will better allow them to adapt to space survival, with the film showing a woman exercising on a gravity-reducing device.

Notable collaborations that appear in the project include "a pair of chunky trainers created by former Dior designer Mats Rombaut" and "a spacesuit made by McRae in partnership with a National Opera costume designer."
