CH: You get inspired by theories, science, scientific news – what interests you and how do you approach a topic?
AK: I have always loved science! So whenever I have the opportunity, I listen to science podcasts. For me there is some wonderful mixture of logic and diligence combined with magic and wonder! So when I hear something that triggers an idea or interest, I start researching the topic and find bits of text or images – they start adding to a huge »scrap-book« or sometimes even a wall full of sketches, notes, and images. I try to understand connections or try to discover them where they might not be obvious. I really try to understand in depth but also maintain some kind of overview.
