Audrey Coulombe is a research assistant and undergraduate student in Computer Arts at Concordia. Through her research-creation practice, she explores how the use of digital technologies can extend traditional media, with a focus on how it alters meaning and fosters introspection and empathy in users. More specifically, her work critically addresses contemporary concerns raised by new media, such as algorithmic biases, the environmental impact of digital technologies, and the increasingly fast-paced lifestyle they induce. With a background in fashion design, Audrey Coulombe has also experimented with a wide range of techniques at the intersection of apparel and digital media.
