I first met Nelly back in 2016 whilst Worldwide FM was broadcasting from LA, for WeTransfer’s ‘How We Do LA’ event. The day I was due to fly home to London, I spent a fun couple hours wandering around The Museum of Contemporary Art with her and WT Creative Director Laszlito Kovacs. So, when I began with Strrr TV a year later, Nelly’s was one of the first names that popped into my mind as potential future hosts, so it’s a delight to have got her involved in the Strrr project. I learned a great deal from her episode which has led me to explore a load of her selections, so I’d recommend you give it a watch here.

Dr Nelly Ben Hayoun is a formidable creative force in the world of experiential design. Using interdisciplinary approaches, Nelly Ben Hayoun Studios create wildly diverse events and experiences, collaborating with organisations such as NASA, The European Space Agency and The SETI Institute. Nelly is the author and director of two feature length movies, and fulfils a plethora of roles working with and consulting for organisations such as the UN, XL Recordings, Lego and Mattel. Most recently, Nelly has teamed up with the Sandberg Instituut and WeTransfer to launch the University of the Underground, a free postgraduate university supporting unconventional research practices. In her episode of Strrr TV, Nelly picks videos featuring her most inspirational directors, artists, dance moves, and more.

Nelly is currently running The University of the Underground,  which is a a fascinatingly ambitious project. Check it out.

Next episode I produced for Strrr TV is Lewisham’s finest, Novelist.

Worldwide FM talk at Glug x WeTransfer Event

Last summer I was asked by Rob Alderson to talk at the Glug x WeTransfer 'Passion Projects' event in Shoreditch. It was a good opportunity to consolidate my thoughts on the launch of the station, and the first year of running Worldwide FM, as well as articulating the...

Nadav Kander

A few weeks back, researching people for Strrr TV, I was reminded of the photographer Nadav Kander. I first came across his work when a former girlfriend brought me to see his show 'Yangtze, The Long River' back in 2010. By chance, early this year I walked by Flowers...

WeTransfer’s A Message From Earth – Music Section

In November, for the 40th anniversary of NASA’s Golden Record project, I produced the music section for WeTransfer’s A Message From Earth. 

The brief was wonderfully broad; programming, producing and delivering a music section which attempts to reflect the diversity of music on planet earth, and explore the experience of musicians today.

Since finishing at Mistral Productions, I've linked up with Daniel Brandt and the Berlin team at Strrr TV, working as their UK editor. It's been a lot of fun so far,  allowing me to use my audio and video production background, whilst getting to research, contact and...

Timothy Morton

Whilst doing some research for future potential Strrr TV guests, I'd ended up on the Studio Olafur Eliasson website. Olafur Eliasson is an Icelandic-Danish artist known for sculptures and large-scale installation art employing elemental materials such as light, water,...

Taz Tron Delix

A few weeks back I came across the work of Taz Tron Delix, a London-based director. His work with JD. Reid, Novelist and Oscar #Worldpeace is great. He's got a piece for Adidas out right now as well. Having researched his stuff, I then bumped into him in the pub the...
