Cecilia Tam
Since 2004
Works in Montreal Canada

I am an international student from Italy at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. I graduated as a set designer from Accademia di Brera in Milan, Italy, in July 2003 and two weeks after that I came to Montreal to attend a unique graduate program in �Digital Technologies in Design Art Practice". During my four years of undergraduate studies, I received a bursary for an exchange program at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where I joined a program in the Architectural Design department.

As an interior designer I am interested especially in the organization of spaces and their relationship with human behavior. Traveling plays an extensive role in this matter, and this is one of the reasons why I am here. Montreal, Quebec, represents a quite interesting compromise between American and European culture.

At Concordia, I am working on a research project, whose aim is to create a �Digital Memory" to be presented as an interactive web site.
At the end of this program I will probably return to Europe to attend a Master�s program financed by funding from the European Union.
