Description

Ghislaine Boddington is an award winning curator and director, specialising in the future human, body responsive technologies and immersive experiences. She is Co-founder and Creative Director of body>data>space, an interactive design collective who have advocated for the living body to be at the heart of the digital debate since the early 1990s. With a background in performing arts and technologies she has focused on the blending of our virtual and physical bodies, and sees a future in which we connect ourselves into a networked “multi-self,” an “Internet of Bodies” enabled by hyper-enhancement of the senses and tele-intuition.

She presents worldwide and consults for the creative industries sector on the evolution of body technologies and her work as a curator includes Nesta’s FutureFest events (2015-18). A Reader in Digital Immersion at University of Greenwich, she sits on the Editorial Board of AI & Society (Springer), is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and is spokesperson for the Deutsche Bank Women Entrepreneurs in Social Tech accelerator. Ghislaine co-presents bi-weekly for BBC Click, the BBC World Service Radio flagship technology programme.
