Mindy Seu, Visiting Designer

March 23, 2022

Mindy Seu has long been a gatherer. In its material and social forms, as a collection and event, gatherings serve as the intentional aggregation of resources for a specific community. In this lecture, Seu will discuss tools, indexes, and learning trails through five chapters: 1) Cyberfeminism Index, 2) ellipses and citations, 3) asterisks and collective publishing, 4) web-to-print tools, and 5) the Carrier Bag Theory.

Mindy holds an M.Des from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and a B.A. in Design Media Arts from University of California, Los Angeles. As a fellow at the Harvard Law School’s Berkman Klein Center for the Internet & Society, she began the digital Cyberfeminism Index, which was later commissioned by Rhizome and presented at the New Museum. The printed publication Cyberfeminism Catalog is a 2021 recipient of the Graham Foundation Grant and will be published in Fall 2022. Seu has been a fellow at the Internet Archive, as well as a designer for 2×4’s Interactive Media team and the Museum of Modern Art’s in-house design studio. She has given lectures and workshops at Barbican Center, CalArts, Parsons, Pratt, RISD, Berkeley Art Museum, among others. Seu is currently an Assistant Professor at Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts and Critic at Yale School of Art.
