Welcome to Violet Sessions, a series of talks with interesting people doing amazing things hosted by chef and food writer Claire Ptak and journalist and broadcaster Danielle Radojcin. In this episode, Danielle chats to sci-fi artist Lucy McRae, and documentary Lotje Sodderland about their short film, The Institute of Isolation. The film, commissioned by Ars Electronica and currently showing at the The Science Museum in London, explores the idea of how as humans we are now wilfully evolving through technology rather than nature. The podcast includes a discussion with the audience, focusing on the idea of isolation and how it affects people in different ways. – Danielle Radojcin
