Ginsberg studied architecture at Cambridge University and interaction design at the Royal College of Art, followed by a PhD from the RCA.

The show gathers together six of her key projects including an exploration of how Mars could be colonised by new species of plants; and Resurrecting the Sublime, which attempts to recreate the smell of long-extinct flowers.
Other key projects include Designing for the Sixth Extinction, which imagines a range of bio-engineered creatures that are released into the wild to help mitigate the damage humans are doing to planet Earth; and E. Chromi, which imagines new types of bacteria living inside the human gut that turn faeces bright colours that warn of impending disease.
In 2014 Ginsberg was one of six designers commissioned by Dezeen to explore the future of mobility for an exhibition staged during the London Design Festival. Part of the Dezeen and MINI Frontiers project, Ginsberg imagined a future where cars would be grown...
