Edge of Human is an experimental online publishing project based on a performance project that Lucy Woodhouse curated in 2014 of the same name. The new online work uses a series of scans as well as other documentation that she made of the exhibition and employs a performative approach to how the resulting documentation is displayed.

Edge of Human involves the work of 33 artists, curators, writers, designers, musicians and gamers and uses a fluid curatorial approach to how the works are experienced.

Lucy Woodhouse works across a variety of media including digital media, sculpture and performance. Interested in the modes through which social experience is presented transformed and consumed her work is created through exploring ideas around locality and connectivity. She has recently curated the performance project Edge of Human for Los Angeles 2019, London, 2014, and created performances for Space Time: The Future at Wysing Art Centre, Cambridge, 2014, and Matt's Gallery, London, 2014.
