Convergence 2017 presents Sessions: a series of talks + workshops + encounters
Our next Sessions podcast comes from none other than Nelly Ben Hayoun. Dubbed the Willy Wonka of Design and Science, she designs extreme experiences allowing you to become an astronaut in your living room while dark energy is being created in your kitchen sink and a volcano erupts on your couch. She leads an interdisciplinary design studio in London which devises subversive events and experiences and is on a mission to bring chaos, subversion, critical thinking and disorder into the scientific and digital world.
Her CV includes positions such as Head of Experiences at We Transfer, Designer of Experiences at the SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), a member of the International Astronautical Federation and a United Nations Advisor to the UN VR (Virtual Reality) labs. In 2014 Wired magazine awarded Nelly Ben Hayoun with a WIRED Innovation fellowship for her work to date and its 'significant impact on the world '.
