Now, our joint project finally got its starting point and also widens with global trace ...

The cooperation and the project can be broadly placed on exploring what the global consumption takes us out into the world and maybe why ... To explore materials and then bring in the element of water as a life-giving component makes it interesting for both of us, both for that water is exactly life-giving and without water, no life ... But what do we do with our water, what do we do with our nature and what are we producing ?!
Consumption Society contra or in harmony with the art, the art of touch, asking questions and turned to reach for directions first might not think it would look the ... Asking questions or show the responses.

The project started almost 3 years ago and grows through exploration and dialogue between both of us, we work in different places, in each particular art field and the forces against something for both of us for our art forms to new goals ...
With the performance festival Konstepidemin now at the beginning of 2015, so has our public trip started and now we will see how it grows, shoot branches and makes his way ... We have the foundation and now we will continue the project together and see where we ports, we have no deadline and we have no clear goal.

“UNDA” is billow, water & wave

Let us begin with Latin and English; the English word “waste” is derived from the Latin
“UASTUS” (a, um), meaning something that can’t be used, is squandered, or ruined. Like
the Latin word, the English has a double meaning and is used not only to categorize a substance, but also to describe a conscious human action.
In the latter sense, the word means something negative, something which possibly
contends against a sane and measured action. At the same time, the waste becomes related to culture: without man, there is no waste. A Swedish translation of the English word waste is “ödsla bort,” meaning something that would have been useful elsewhere, or could have been utilized for something more valuable.

Concentrating on this interpretation will lead to thoughts of a natural circulatory system, a system where the superfluous returns to nature as nutrition. Modern Swedish language usage conceals this, in modern times occurring, displacement of meaning where natural biology is covered under an alien, allen compassing category, created by industrialized and commercialized society.
In pre-industrial society, the biological part of waste was never “waste.” In extension, this means that a line can be drawn for the displacement of meaning at a time when the natural circulatory system was broken and society created its modern garbage dumps. It is thus possible to argue that before industrialization, there was nothing that could be classified or described as “avfall”(waste).
