ABOUT

 

Lesley-Ann Daly investigates the future possibilities of sensory enhancement and augmentation, and the personal, societal and ethical influences they may have on our lives.  By looking at real emerging technologies and ongoing scientific research, she develops speculative scenarios that explore how we can enhance our sensory perception of the world. Coming from a background in Make-up and Prosthetics design, she uses the body as her source of inspiration for future innovation.
