I really enjoy my role in this project. It feels like being a detective or an investigator who has to chain facts, ideas in a logical path. I do not deal with well-known facts, my aim is to reveal something hidden form your eyes. It involves extensive research, logical reasoning and brainstorming sessions. Ultimately it is a very rewarding experience. So, I am Lara Croft in front of a monitor, but do not disturb the peace of tombs.
I am not a collector, but I am fascinated by Den`s enthusiasm and those objects and their history that he shows me. My role is to apply my technical skills to deliver all this information and ensure that the greatest number of people can see it.
