Rendering, Rewilding with Synthetic Biology, from Designing for the Sixth Extinction, 2013
Ginsberg’s series Designing for the Sixth Extinction (2013–ongoing) investigates synthetic biology’s potential impact on biodiversity. Her vision of engineered organisms includes a slug to neutralize acidic soil, a porcupine-like device to collect and disperse seeds, and a self-replicating biofilm to trap airborne pollutants.
