Michèle est chercheuse et graphiste,


Elle dessine des
méandres,



entre la recherche culturelle et le graphisme. Elle mène des recherches sur la rhétorique positive et l’industrie du bonheur en tant que formes de contrôle social et de surveillance numérique. Elle a écrit sur Sidewalk Labs, les villes intélligentes et la reconnaissance d’émotion pour Back Office, C Magazine et The Gradient, une publication par Walker Art Center, ainsi que pour Volume et Failed Architecture à Amsterdam.

Michèle crée des textes, des images, des livres, des magazines, des sites Web et des beaux draps littéraires. Elle a collaboré avec Artexte, Centre pour les droits numériques, Droog, la revue Estuaire, Mediamatic, Metahaven, Penguin Random House Canada, Institut Strelka et VPRO, un diffuseur public néerlandais. Sa refonte de la revue Hazlitt pour Penguin s’est vu décerneé, en 2015, le Prix du magazine canadien de site Web de l’année.

Diplômée en design de l’Institut Sandberg aux Pays-Bas, elle a été professeure invitée à l’École de design à l’Université du Québec à Montréal et conférencière invitée à l’École supérieure de design à l’Université Harvard.
