Mouna Andraos

Founder, principal

Considering technology as a vehicle for social change is an important part of Mouna Andraos’ work, which is geared towards demystifying and disseminating technology. She has led numerous workshops in places as diverse as Beirut’s Olympiades culturelles, to the San José Biennale, as well as the Nagoya Design Center.

Prior to founding Daily tous les jours, Mouna worked under the label Electronic Crafts exploring the intersection of mass-produced electronics and handmade crafts to create playful, sustainable or participatory objects. Some of her work include a giant word clock that tells the story of passing time and a portable power station that brings alternative electricity to the streets. Her work has been showcased at PS1/MoMA, Queens, as part of the 2008 YAP installation, Exit Art Gallery New York or in her first solo show at La Centrale Galerie Powerhouse in Montréal.

Her web-based work for Montréal interactive agency Bluesponge has won numerous international recognitions including prizes from Communication Arts, ID magazine, Webby, Best of Show at the SXSW Festival and a CyberLion in Cannes. She was also recently awarded the Phyllis Lambert Design Award along with Melissa Mongiat by the city of Montreal.

Mouna holds a Masters degree from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) and a Bachelors degree from Concordia University. She is also an alumnus of Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology in New York City.

She is currently teaching at Concordia University and UQAM’s École de Design.
