Mrinalini Singha is an artist and creative technologist whose growing body of work addresses socio-political, cultural and environmental urgencies across mediums such as film, installation, tangible interfaces and XR.

She wears many hats, from researching at the MIT Open Documentary Lab (on Worlding– a partnership between the Co-Creation Studio and Unity exploring climate futures and game engine technologies) to being a part of the Design X 2023 cohort (building the personalized HCI products venture, Sofdesk) to nurturing the Himalayan Folk Collective (an evolving community of archiving histories and imagining futures with the aim of facilitating fertile ground for new contemporary folk cultures, ways of being and public imaginaries to emerge and evolve.) She is also currently pursuing her MS in Art, Culture, and Technology at MIT.

Before joining MIT, she worked as a Design Researcher at Alt News, the leading voice against misinformation and hate speech in India in the face of polarized nation-state politics and a drastically changing media landscape. Prior to that, she completed her B.Des from the National Institute of Design, India, during which, as a Ford Foundation Fellow, she explored the Western Himalayan Region’s folklore.
