BY VALÉRIE HUG UND LUISE REY
Valérie Hug: What inspires you?
Silja Senn: Zurich is ideal for discovering so many new things. I like to be inspired by my surroundings and everyday situations, for instance, walking through town, down Langstrasse, or riding bus route 32. And I enjoy rummaging through ZHdK’s props and equipment store — which is wonderfully inspiring.
What’s your dream profession once you graduate?
That’s a difficult question. Right now, I’m considering doing stage design at a theatre. But I could also imagine doing a Master’s in Fine Arts, because I’m fascinated by spatial installations.
