This series is about the management of FISE.

They are the members who can be contacted if you have some question or problem, they can be seen to come and go nervously before the events and the exhibitions…
But who are they – beyond their work?

This post is the last one, hope you liked to know more about us!

Name: Anna Börcsök
metalsmith

Zodiac: Capricorn

Job you wanted as a child: Architecht. But I realised to be a metalsmith is much cooler, there is more self-sufficiendy in this.

Favourite month / time of the day: August, when the sunlight is not so hard and morning when the day starts. There is plenty of time to start the work, the ideas come, and all the days are still long enough.

If YOU will be a colour: Turquoise as the sea.

Recreation: Rowing on the Little-Danube.

Last book you read: Miklós Vámos: The book of fathers

Last culture event or experience you enjoyed: The exhibition of Veronika Fábián: All In at Szentendre. The opening speech from the writer Krisztián Grecsó touched me, and it was excellent to see Vera's works toghether.

3 can't-live-without stuffs: My jewelleris... the most important. There are a lot of favourites time to time. I select from my own colletions regularly but I love to make exchanges with other creators. My newest one is a KIKI collection from Kinga Horányi.

Favourite designer / artist: Ted Noten jewellwery designer, Gergye Krisztián choreographer, who I met and talked at Szombathely on a big FISE exhibition, it was an unfogettable experience!

Project of your wishful thinking: I would like to found an own jewellery company which based on marketable, sensibile and meaningful object-collections. I would like to teach at a university. There are a lot of untapped territory by the contemporary jewels and to descover it I need company.

One sentence about you: „To reach your gouls have to go through on the fiery field of distress." (Judith Sills)

Project of your wishful thinking: I’m afraid it is a past time story already. In 2011 I had a chance to plan the inner cabin of the Virgin Galactic SpaceShip Two. I worked for a little Hungarian company, Corvus Aircraft Ltd., it was the firstclass about composit-tehcnology. My concept plans went to California and the Spaceship Company was pleased with them. But there was some financial problem at Corvus, so the company went bankrupt, and all the plans flew away... that’s called: ces’t la vie.

One sentence about you: Not your decision how long will be your life - but your decision is how wide is.

In this íear for the first time the Design Duel moves to Mátranovák.
There is more time and more space to create and work.

The basis are the same as usually: the project is secret till the start, teamwork is obligatory, the project has a deadline, and only the materials and tools can be use which are given.

What can happen?
Maybe a plant under a bed...
