Audrey Desjardins


Audrey studied industrial design at Université de Montréal before moving to Vancouver where she did her Master of Arts in the Everyday Design Studio with Ron Wakkary. Her thesis was presenting a descriptive account of three making practices of non-expert designers; the practices of families, hobbyist jewellers and steampunk enthusiasts. Now working on her PhD, her interests revolve around designing interactive technologies that demonstrate new qualities which can fit everyday practices. In her spare time, you will find her silversmithing, skiing, camping, or working on the Sprinter van she is converting into a campervan with her partner Léandre.
