Migration of Fish On Dry Land by Marta Sif, Hilversum, Netherlands

Fish On Dry Land by Marta Sif Hilversum Netherlands

Issues of migration and unemployment are significant problems for isolated villages, islands and island nations. Netherlands-based Icelandic social product designer Marta Sif wanted to utilise product creation as a method of both celebrating and strengthening local industry. Through her Fish On Dry Land project, Sif engaged the residents of a small fishing village in Iceland. Using local companies and skills, the designer combined expertise in metalwork, netknitting and art with the village’s fishing industry to create a collection of furniture and decorative pieces based on, and using marine goods. Ephemeral elements informed the construction of each piece, playing with notions such as floating, catching and unsteadiness.
