Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg

Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg is a British designer and artist who studied Design Interaction at the Royal College of Art. She is currently the Design Fellow for the ‘Synthetic Aesthetics’ project at Stanford and Edinburgh Universities, curating  artists, designers and synthetic biologists exploring existing and potential collaborations between biology and the creative arts. Her work, which can be located in the field of design and the biotech revolution, is inspired by the implications of innovative and emerging technologies for society.

The project will be on display in the exhibition during Alter Nature: We Can (21.11.2010-13.03.2011) is ‘The Synthetic Kingdom: A Proposal for a New Branch of the Tree of Life’. This project examines the current classifications of living beings; Ginsberg proposes that the biological classification system be altered to include ‘synthetics’ as part of our new nature.
