In the Norse cosmogony, the finite world is created from the dismembered body of the Primordial Giant, Ymir, perfectly portioned out to fulfil its sublunary function. Set to a visual score that employs archival material to trace the development of commercial fishing in Skagaströnd, Northern Iceland, waste is a meditation on over-consumption, and penury, and the devastating violence of our disproportionate hungers.
