Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg: On Media and Extinction
Dr. Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg is an artist, designer, and scientist based in London whose work explores the relationship between nature and technology. Her multidisciplinary practice has been recognized by the World Technology Award and the London Design Medal for Emerging Talent. Commissioned by Cooper Hewitt and Cube Design Museum, Ginsberg’s The Substitute (2019) presents a striking digital iteration of the northern white rhino, a species perilously close to extinction. Audiences will be able to view documentation of the installation, followed by a conversation with Ginsberg, Cooper Hewitt curator Andrea Lipps, and conservationist Dr. Kent Redford about the work’s use of digital media, including artificial intelligence, to address biodiversity loss and bioengineering ethics.

This program is part of Viewfinder: Women’s Film and Video from the Smithsonian, a monthly virtual film screening and conversation series sponsored by the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative, Because of Her Story. This second half of the series showcases creative responses to the external forces that shape the way we move through and experience the world.
