Nobuhisa (Nobu) Ishizuka, from Japan, has arrived this week after an eight month wait from his trial period to start in the Interactive Department. Welcome him by saying, "Hi." Or "Hello."
What were you doing before coming to Fabrica?
I was taking my masters course in Japan. The college's name is IAMAS (Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences), where I made an interactive installation in a studio called "time based media".
What was your first impression when you arrived on
I was a bit stressed because I had to finish my work before the end of trial but here we had a lot of parties and we couldn't miss the last bus at 8 p.m. We had nothing but to enjoy drinking at night even though we were on trial. I really liked the balance between working and drinking.
What do you expect to learn from your time in Fabrica?
Something I can't expect now.
What are you afraid of?
Being away from my country, friends, culture, food.... But everything is what I was looking forward to.
What are you looking the most forward to?
As I answered in the last question, what I am afraid of is what I am looking forward to. In this situation different from the one I used to be in, something different will be born.
