Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg develops experimental approaches to imagine alternative ideals around design. Designing objects, workshops, writing and curating, Daisy investigates design’s aesthetic and ethical futures with collaborators around the world including scientists, engineers, artists, designers, social scientists, galleries and industry.
Daisy curated Synthetic Aesthetics, an international research project between synthetic biology, art and design (Stanford University/University of Edinburgh), and is lead author of Synthetic Aesthetics: Investigating Synthetic Biology’s Designs on Nature (MIT Press, 2014). The Dream of Better, her PhD research at the Royal College of Art, explores our idea of the 'better' future.
Daisy lectures and exhibits internationally, including MoMA New York, London’s Design Museum, Tokyo’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and the National Museum of China.
She received the World Technology Award for Design 2011 and the London Design Medal for Emerging Talent 2012, and was twice nominated for Designs of The Year (2011, 2015), with Designing for the Sixth Extinction described as “romantic, dangerous… and everything else that inspires us to change and question the world.”
