workBENCH 10. - Ágnes Elek
In this series the members show their workbench: the place where plans come true, projects materialize. Here comes new workplaces, it is more than current nowadays when most of us have to stay at home and work in home-office!
First responser in reloaded: Ágnes Elek, textile designer
Ágnes has no special period in a day to create, if she has only one or two hours (stricktly after family and official working hours) she starts to work for herself. She prefers the evenings when the world calms down, and the endless freedom and peace helps her work till night. In fact she always thinks about solving technical problems...
She mostly uses pencils and reused papers for planning, and the best ideas birth on shopping-list notes.
The main inspiration cames from her 5 years old son, he gives plenty of topics for the team of the KACs Műhely - it is a visual education workshop-team, Ágnes is one of the founder and co-worker. But there are a lot of trivial (but very important) daily activity which gives her inspiration such as washing the dishes, or washing the laundry, cooking or gardening.
She loves coffee, and there is nothing to replace it.
If something make her stop she really sop with it, and the solution comes in the most unexpected moment, and it is not uncommon either if the solution comes at night in a dream.
For working she listening to podcats in various topics: gastronomy, social history, philosophy, religious history or sustainability and environmental protection.
Her biggest wish is a loom - which is too big to place it on a workbench, but of Course she could place it somewhere else...
