Designing for Participation Daily tous les jours is a Montreal-based interaction design studio with a focus on collective experiences and participation in public spaces. It was founded in 2010 by Mouna Andraos and Melissa Mongiat, artists who came from the fields of interaction design and narrative environments, and who then developed a team of designers, artists, technologists, architects, and expert prototypers. They have a site-specific approach that seeks design opportunities within locations and their inhabitants. From these, they craft interactive pieces that connect people to their environment, and to each other. Daily tous les jours' work has been recognized internationally with awards that include best in show at the 2013 Interaction Awards, the grand prize at the 2014 UNESCO Shenzhen Design Awards, the 2015 Knights Cities Award, and more recently, a Fast Company Innovation by Design award. During this residency, members of the Daily tous les jours team will walk students through the process of creating an interactive sound installation, working closely with Professor Jenny Olivia Johnson in her course, Studies in 20th Century Music: Interactive Sound Art with Electronics. The group will be introduced March 7, and their work with the students will be presented March 17.
