Originally from Italy and now based in NYC, Giorgia Lupi is an information designer, artist and entrepreneur. Thanks to her work and research, Giorgia is a prominent voice in the world of data. What sets Giorgia apart is her humanistic approach to the world of data. While Data can be considered to be impersonal, boring, and clinical, her work proves the opposite.
She is co-author of Dear Data, which in 2016 was selected to become part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Her work is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, where in 2017 she also was commissioned to create an original site-specific piece, and of the permanent collection of the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. She has been named One of “Fast Company’s” 100 Most Creative People in Business in 2018, and she recently joined MIT Media Lab as a Director’s Fellow.
Her TED TALK on data humanism, a term which she helped to coin, has over one million views. Her latest book, Observe, Collect, Draw – A Visual Journal, was released in September of 2018.
