Tenzin Shenyen is a British-born Tibetan Buddhist monk.
His talk presented a Buddhist take on design, arguing that karma and experience cannot even be correlated for predictable effect, much less be designed. The task of designers today is to just ride the chaos and make decisions characterised by innocence and precision. From cinema directors to kamikaze pilots, from biographeme to biography and back again, Shenyen traced a soft logic lineage of ‘contemporaries across millennia’.
