Hélène Charette

Hélène Charette has been a stained-glass artist for over 30 years. In early childhood she was mesmerized by the stained-glass windows in the basilicas of Quebec City and Montreal, and would reflect on every individual panel and the minute details therein. She believes that working with glass is far less about realistic representation than it is about precision, care, and most of all, the willingness to adapt, to work with the grooves of each sheet of glass.


Michelle Charette

Michelle Charette is a PhD candidate in the Department of Science and Technology Studies (STS) at York University. Her research focuses on contemporary clinical systems designed to enhance care for individuals with musculoskeletal conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. She is committed to collaborative and experimental research methods for exploring the sensorial and lived dimensions of atypical embodiment.
