Body architect Lucy McRae's new music video for Australian synth-pop group Rat vs Possum depicts a candy-coated science lab's day off. Bodies packed into pastel jumpsuits engage in land-bound synchronized swimming, evolving into a kaleidoscopic macarena. Ambiguous experiments involving pigment, petri dishes and toothbrushes add to the loveable confusion.
McRae, the engineer behind Robyn's 'Body Talk' album cover, proves that you do not need technological effects to create a mouthwatering and original video artwork, all you need is the human body. In the last moments of the video, the curtain is pulled back and the mechanics behind the magical movements are revealed. Not surprisingly, and per McRae's philosophy, it's bodies all the way down.
