Dr Georgina Voss is an anthropologist of technology and innovation systems, an artist, and a writer and journalist. She is a founding member and director of the research studio Strange Telemetry; and co-founder and lead of Supra Systems Studio at the London College of Communication, where she is Senior Lecturer and Subject Lead in Critical Studies and Design.

Georgina’s work examines the political and cultural forces that shape the construction and reception of large and complex technologies, and the industrial systems which make them. She does this through installations, objects, films, talks, research projects, and talks. She is particularly interested in heavy engineering, machinery, and infrastructure; deviance and stigma; and ephemera.

Georgina’s artwork and installations have been commissioned by bodies including Brighton Digital Festival; Milton Keynes International Festival; Artefakt, Leuven; London Design Festival; Somerset House; Future Flux Festival, Rotterdam; NESTA; and the Open University. She has been a resident at Lighthouse Arts, Brighton; Experimental Research Lab, Pier 9, Autodesk, San Francisco; and RAMLAB, Port of Rotterdam.

Her writing on technology and politics has appeared in online, print, and academic publications including The Atlantic, HOLO, Wired, BBC Futures, Science as Culture, Sexualities, and many others; and she has been a regular contributor to The Guardian’s Political Science section. She has held previous positions with MIT, Royal College of Art, and Tinker London.

Georgina was awarded her PhD in Science and Technology Studies by SPRU, University of Sussex, which investigated how stigma shaped the industrial dynamics of the adult entertainment industry, and technological practices. She holds an MBiochem in Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry with History and Philosophy of Science from Oxford University.
