I’m bicoastal between Los Angeles and New York City. Though trained as a graphic designer, my work has branched into publishing, curation, writing, and teaching, alongside design commissions. However, my true love is the lecture performance and public speaking. The following has been listed, among others, on this CV spreadsheet of past, present, and upcoming work. Updates are posted through Instagram, and I welcome messages through email (mindy seu at gmail dot com). You can also see some collections and musings on Are.na. For professional bios written in the third person, refer to the blurb at the top of the spreadsheet. Otherwise, continue reading for the latest collaborations...

Performing Lectures… In 2022–23, I had a whirlwind international book tour with 84 events in 18 countries. To view documentation, please visit: tour.cyberfeminismindex.com. We’ve held sold-out events at the New Museum (New York), Whitechapel Gallery (London), Lafayette Anticipations (Paris), MCA Australia (Sydney), and Amant Foundation (Brooklyn), among others. During a Summer 2022 residency at MacDowell, I worked on the Cyberfeminism Index performative reading with bespoke Augmented Reality app by Tommy Martinez. To preview this lecture performance, please view the documentation of our New Museum event by Rhizome. For more lectures, check out the “Talks” tab of my CV spreadsheet. If you or your org would like to commission a new lecture performance, please email and I would be excited to discuss this with you!

Cyberfeminism Index... Cyberfeminism Index (book) is now available! The book was published by Inventory Press, distributed by D.A.P, designed by Laura Coombs, and edited by Andrew Scheinman and Eugenia Bell, with image permissions by Danielle Wu. 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. Thank you to my collaborator Angeline Meitzler who developed the online database, with frontend support from Janine Rosen and Print CSS support by Charles Broskoski. This research began during my time at the Berkman Klein Center for the Internet & Society and Harvard GSD. Thank you so much to my GSD mentors Jeffrey Schnapp and Malkit Shoshan.

Curating... I’m currently co-curating an exhibition series for the Ford Foundation Gallery alongside Roxana Fabius, Susana Vargas Cervantes, Kobe Ko, Beya Othmani, and Isis Awad, with the first exhibition premiering in March 2024. WETWARE launched on Feral File in May 2022. 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, an 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... I’m currently working on an essay called “Performing Lectures” for Outland, guest edited by Lauren Lee McCarthy. I recently submitted an essay about gender on the blockchain for PUNKS, a new publication by Zak Group, to be published in 2024. Geoff Han’s Image RIP for Source Type and Tai Kwun Contemporary, published in Fall 2023, includes my essay “The Internet Exists on Planet Earth: Earth, Water, Sky.” It was edited by Andrew Scheinman and Ming Lin, and borrows its title from Matthew Battles’s talk at RightsCon Costa Rica. For Spike’s Issue #77 “Field Guide to AI,” I interviewed Martine Syms and Margarete Jahrmann, published in Fall 2023. I recently published and performed “The Metaverse is a Contested Territory” for Pioneer Works, Software for Artists #2: Untethering the Web in August 2022, invited and edited by Tommy Martinez and Willa Köerner. In 2022, Laura Coombs, Laurel Schwulst, and I wrote “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 Yale MFA class, also called On Gathering, explores this topic as well.

Commissions... For the 55th anniversary of the Whole Earth Catalog, Barry Threw, Jon Gacnik, Gray Area, Internet Archive, and I launched the Whole Earth Index on 13 October 2023. We recently launched a new site for Rhizome, co-designed with Laura Coombs. I’m consulted on the newest publication of The Digital Now by Canadian Centre for Architecture with Rafico Ruiz and Ally Pereira-Edwards. With Yasaman Sheri, Angela Dimayuga, and other collaborators, we created the Synthetic Ecologies Compendium for Serpentine Gallery. Invited by Prem Krisnamurthy and Asad Raza for the “How Can We Gather Now?” 2023 symposium, I worked with Shiraz Gallab, Ayana Zaire Cotton, Fabiola Ching, and Mayah Lovell to act as Keynote Listeners. Yotam Hadar and I are currently working on its subsequent publication, to be printed in May 2024. In February 2020, Charles 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 the “Work” tab of my CV spreadsheet.

Teaching... In January 2024, I joined UCLA’s Design Media Arts Department (my alma mater) as tenured faculty. Prior to this, I was an Assistant Professor at Rutgers, and I taught an additional course at Yale School of Art. My latest UCLA MFA seminar “Performing Lectures” introduces the history and theory of the lecture performance. Huge thanks to Gordan Hall and Mashinka Firunts Hakopian for their references. All of my classes and workshops can be seen on my teaching portal.
