Nisa Nur Sayan came all the way from Turkey to join our internship program. She arrived to Stöðvarfjörður in the cold and dark winter days of January 2017. For the next six months she stayed with us, working her magic in the office, until the ever-bright nights of June came about.
Every Intern that has stayed with us has had their own special field of interests. Nisa developed a keen interest and insightful focus on the making of video interviews with the Residency Artists, as well as photographing their artwork for their individual profiles on our website. As a result she delivered a carefully attended portrait of their works and practice.
When Nisa arrived, she had a full suitcase with all you need to make delicious Turkish food. What followed was a delightful dining experience for all team members of the factory and a great introduction to Turkish culture! But Nisa is not only a great chef, she also harbors artistic talents and creativity which she was able to explore with us during her time here.
Nisa is in all manners a kind-hearted diplomat and a dear member of the Fish Factory Family.
