Here 2013: The remarkable Nelly Ben Hayoun on her extraordinary projects

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Few of those who came to our sumer creative symposium Here could forget Nelly Ben Hayoun’s talk. The French creative, memorably once described as “The Willy Wonka of science” is a ball of energy and gave us an amazing insight into her rollicking relationship with all things scientific; from building volcanoes in her living room to trying to create dark matter in the kitchen sink. She also spoke in-depth about the International Space Orchestra, an extraordinary project she ran with NASA and her plans to actually go into space in the future! Astonishing stuff all round.

Remember you can watch all our Here 2013 videos on our dedicated audio visual site First Broadcast.
