“Australian skincare brand Aēsop, recognised a kindred sensibility in McRae’s work and commissioned her to conceive a short film, ‘Morphē’. Here, McRae transforms an old Amsterdam church into a meticulously ordered space referencing Aēsop’s laboratory. She describes her film inspired chiefly by nineteenth-century scientist Hermann von Helmholtz where ‘Everything’, wrote Helmholtz, ‘is an event on the skin’. ‘At the edge of this world, the skin and hair play key roles for the female specimen fortunate enough to be on the receiving end of a new kind of super-sensory beauty treatment.”
