Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg is an artist, designer and writer, interrogating science, technology and new roles for design. As Design Fellow on Synthetic Aesthetics, an NSF/EPSRC-funded project between Stanford University and the University of Edinburgh, she curates an international programme investigating the ‘design of nature’, developing new modes of collaboration and critical discourse between art, design and synthetic biology.
Daisy studied architecture at the University of Cambridge, design at Harvard University, and gained an MA in Design Interactions at the Royal College of Art. Her work has been exhibited at MoMA, The Wellcome Trust, London’s Design Museum, the Israel Museum and the National Museum of China, and is in Trento’s Museo Delle Scienze’s permanent collection. Daisy publishes, teaches and lectures internationally: talks include TEDGlobal and PopTech. In 2011, her work was nominated for the Brit Insurance Designs of The Year and the Index Award; she won the World Technology Award (Design), and in 2012 received the first London Design Medal for Emerging Talent.
