Nelly Ben Hayoun home
Nelly Ben Hayoun graduated from the Royal College of Art’s Design Interactions MA. The department explores alternative realities and possible futures that new technologies and science may hold. From a textile design and fine art background, she has worked and done performances in Paris, Tokyo,Dublin, and London. She is interested in how we can use design in our everyday lives to make them more thrilling, creative and passionate. Her work is about collaboration with experts and amateurs; it aims to adapt science to our creative needs. She thinks that design must be engaged and therefore she is particularly interested in questioning its set up. Her installations are built as a set to facilitate and encourage surreal interactions. Design should be embedded in a physical experience, something that lasts in your memory similarly to seeing a painting and remembering the tone of it.
