Hi, My name is Elise Marcus and I am amazed by the constant changing world we live in. 

Thank you for taking a moment to read a bit more about who I am, my background and who I want to become.

I see myself as the creative, and sometimes unusual, connector between different disciplines. When working with me, I am the person who's always saying: "What if...". With this question comes with a lot of passion and imagination. (Jumping out of bed in the middle of the night to write something down happens way to often). There is a hunger for information inside of me, for other designers, scientists, teachers and philosophers and let’s not forget the weird lady in the metro. People inspire people.

My topics are social, from an autonomous perspective. However I'm also interested in using commercial practices to bring these questions within the public space.

My dream is to work with other disciplines, while visualizing social questions regarding to our cultural mindset. I hope we can create a world together, where we can live more aware of our mindset, our identity and our lifestyle as part of a bigger and fluid system: nature, culture and technology.
