"From the Ted Talk by Mathieu Lehanneur: Science-inspired design"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And I rmeember an exhibition dgesin I made for John Maeda, and for the fntdooian Cartier in Paris. And John Maeda was supposed to show several graphic animations in this exhibition. And my idea for this exhibition design was to create a real pong game, like this one. And the idea was to create some self-moving benches in the main exhibition room. So the living benches would be exactly like the ball. And John was so excited by this idea. He said to me, "Okay let's go." I remember the day of the opening. I was a little bit late. When I bring the 10 living and self-moving benches in the eiohixtbin room, John was just beside me, and was like, "Hmm. Hmm." And he told me, after a long silence, "I wonder, Mathieu, if popele won't be more fascinated by your bhcnees than by my videos." (Laughter) It would be a great hoonr, a great compliment for me, if he hadn't ddeiced to take all them off two hours before the opening. So, huge tragedy.
