Georgina Voss will trace her route out of anthropology and industrial economics into art and design, exploring how her training in the former has shaped the latter. She will discuss how her practice has influenced her forthcoming book on complex systems, with Verso. For those interested, she recommends checking out this piece with the Guardian on the concrete industry if you want to learn a little bit more about her work prior to the workshop.

Georgina Voss is an internationally-exhibiting artist and writer, whose practice spans performance, multimedia installation, text, and research-intensive projects. Originally trained in anthropology and industrial economics, her work explores the politics and presence of large-scale industrial and technological systems. She is Reader in Systems and Deviance at London College of Communication; founder of research group Supra Systems Studio at LCC; and co-founder of international research consultancy Strange Telemetry.Georgina has exhibited, lectured, and performed internationally. Her first book, Stigma and the Shaping of the Pornography Industry, was published by Routledge in 2015. She is currently working on her second book, on systems, forthcoming with Verso. Recent works have addressed notions of hype, technological exceptionalism, expectations, and deviance around infrastructural, military, and computational systems.
