“I was living in this shed by the ocean in Reykjavik and I was completely obsessed with hunting mackerel. The first thing I did when I woke up was go out and fish, and all my dreams were about mackerel. I was just psycho about this mackerel—I was very fixated with this fish. It’s a cool fish: it’s a fish that only very recently started coming to Iceland—like this immigrant fish—it just started coming and people hadn't gotten used to it, and there are all these politics about who should and shouldn’t be allowed to fish it. And when I looked it was just like, this fish. So it stuck.”
