Mouna Andraos • Daily tous les jours
Daily tous les jours researches new ways to interact. They tell stories and design large scale projects that impact cities down to tiny ones that fit inside a pocket. Their projects bring magic to everyday places, behaviors and objects, inviting the public to become active contributors in the process and the outcome. These experiences take many shapes: urban interventions and planning, exhibitions, products, spatial design, events, software applications, film.
The work has won numerous international recognitions including prizes from Core 77 Design Festival, the SXSW Festival and a CyberLion in Cannes as well as a selection by Wallpaper* magazine as part of the world’s ten breakthrough designers. In 2010, founders Mouna Andraos and Melissa Mongiat were awarded the Design Montreal Phyllis Lambert award. They recently won Best in Show at the 2013 Interaction Awards.
Daily tous les jours are very active in the design and new media communities, giving lectures and workshops worldwide, notably at SXSW, Culture and Sustainable Development Colloquium in Paris, Leaders in Software and Arts (LISA) in New York, Tangible Embedded & Embodied Interaction International Conference, Royal College of Art’s Include in London, Walker Art Center, Nagoya Design Center, Banff New Media Institute, Saint-Étienne’s International Design Biennale and the San José Biennale.
For the past three years, Daily tous les jours's focus has been on creating engaging collective experiences that can inspire in people a sense that together we can achieve greater things than individually. But as we take to the streets and head out to reach and engage as wide an audience as possible, new constraints and challenges arise.
I'll discuss the process behind bringing experimentation and prototyping into the public space – and how these constraints can help focus on the essence of the experiences you hope to create.
Discussion / Q&A session with Karolina Sobecka, Mouna Andraos and Alex Beim. Facilitated by Steve Dietz.
