I’m a New York-based designer. The following has been listed, among others, on this CV spreadsheet of past, present, and upcoming work. Occasional updates are posted through instagram and twitter, but I actively use email (mindy seu at gmail dot com) and Are.na. For a professional bio written in the third person, refer to the blurb at the top of the spreadsheet. Otherwise, continue reading for the latest collaborations...
Cyberfeminism Index... Cyberfeminism Index (book) is now available for pre-order! We’re currently planning the 2022–23 tour—to book or view upcoming events, please visit: tour.cyberfeminismindex.com. The book was designed by Laura Coombs and edited by Andrew Scheinman, with image permissions by Danielle Wu and production support from Inventory Press. It is a recipient of the Graham Foundation Grant. The Cyberfeminism Index (website) was commissioned by Rhizome and premiered with New Museum’s First Look. I’m currently a resident at MacDowell working on the performative reading that will include a bespoke AR app by Tommy Martinez. This research began during my time at the Berkman Klein Center for the Internet & Society and Harvard GSD. This has been presented at Typographics, Radical Networks, New Museum, and Barbican Centre, among others. An excerpt can be seen in the sixth issue of AIGA Eye on Design, edited by Meg Miller. Thank you to my collaborator Angeline Meitzler who developed the online database, with frontend support from Janine Rosen and a little PDF script by Cab Broskoski. You can read more about Cyberfeminism Index in this Walker Art Center interview by Marie Hoejlund.
Curating... WETWARE launched on Feral File in May 2022, and it was then featured on Friends with Benefits in a conversation with Lindsay Howard, as well as HOLO. Special thanks to Eileen Skyers and Casey Reas for their support with this exhibition. In 2020, Roxana Fabius, Patricia M. Hernandez, and I co-curated the Scalability Project: Cacophony of Troubled Stories, the next on- and off-line exhibition for A.I.R. Gallery, designed by Wkshps. This project helped me recognize my love for the interview, and we were honored to speak with Anna L. Tsing about Feral Atlas and adrienne maree brown about Emergent Strategy.
Writing... Laura Coombs, Laurel Schwulst, and I recently published “Multidimensional Citation” for Serving Library: Meander, edited by David Reinfurt and Meg Miller. I’ve been thinking about gathering in its material and social forms, and to consolidate my thoughts, I wrote “On Gathering” for the Knight Foundation, through an invitation by Salome Asega. My latest Yale MFA class, also called On Gathering, explores this topic as well. For a new publication by Geoff Han for Source Type and Tai Kwun Contemporary, I wrote the essay “The Internet Exists on Planet Earth: Earth, Water, Sky,” edited by Andrew Scheinman and Ming Lin.
Commissions... I’m currently working on the redesign of Rhizome with Laura Coombs. With Yasaman Sheri, Angela Dimayuga, and other collaborators, we created the Synthetic Ecologies Compendium for Serpentine Gallery. In February 2020, Cab Broskoski, Ekene Ijeoma, and I created print.are.na, a tool that generates print-on-demand PDFs from Are.na channels. To learn more about my latest projects, please check out this April 2021 recorded lecture from Central Saint Martins.
Teaching... I’m an Assistant Professor at Rutgers, and I teach an additional course at Yale. I particularly like the quick format of workshops. Laura and I held an asterisk workshop for Southland Institute, with facilitation from Joe Potts and programming support from Richard Caceres. With Jon Gacnik and Jürg Lehni, I co-led the workshop Local Area Network at A-B-Z-TXT in 2018. Jon and I also co-led the Anti-Anti-Aliasing workshop at the RISD Graphic Design Department. All of my classes and workshops can be seen on my teaching portal.
