Designer and Curator of the Synthesis Workshop
The Daisy Ginsberg speeches explore the precarious bridge between the study of biology and the art of design.

Her work has been displayed internationally at exhibits ranging from the MoMA NY to the National Museum of China and have been recognized for their quality with the World Technology Award (Design) 2011.
She is currently a Design Fellow at Stanford University and the University of Edinburgh for synthetic aesthetics. She is creating a program that researches synthetic biology and how we can engineer nature.
In speaking from the perspective of a design-focused student, the Daisy Ginsberg speeches are steeped in examples that highlight the power of nature when tweaked only a little in it genetics.
