Interview with Nelly Ben Hayoun

This year’s OEB is all about the skills people need to survive and prosper in a new age of uncertainty. Conference participants will be asked to consider how they can use uncertainty to bring about positive change. It’s an area in which Nelly Ben Hayoun, dubbed “the Willy Wonka of Design and Science,” is something of an expert.


An award-winning director and designer of experiences, Ben Hayoun has worked with a seriously impressive list of artists and organisations. Her activities include serving in the position of Designer of Experiences at SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute and founding the International Space Orchestra (ISO) – the world’s first orchestra of space scientists and astronauts from NASA. In the latter, she has worked with Beck, Damon Albarn and Bobby Womack amongst others. Her output has been exhibited at the National Museum of China, the MOMA, the V&A, and other leading design institutions, and she has written and directed two feature-length movies, including the award-winning ‘Disaster Playground’.
