  • Cindy Lin is a researcher, bio-enthusiast and artist dedicated to the critical understanding and intervention of and around shared technological and scientific spaces in marginal sites of innovation. As a PhD student at the School of Information, University of Michigan, Cindy conducts multi-sited ethnographic work on the politics, organization, and material engagements of DIY maker and hacker culture in Indonesia and the American Midwest. She also develops physical prototypes and writings on how humans can respond to the Anthropocene by designing with hope and an anthropomorphic reflexivity.

    She is co-editor of an independent semi-academic Southeast Asian Studies journal in 2013, “Subjectivities” and has also recently initiated “Sewon FoodLab”, a transnational collaboration with geeks from Indonesia to critically think, experiment and discuss about consumable matter.
