Super Vague began in 2013 as an investigation between practicing artist Keeley Haftner and PhD candidate in toxicology David Saunders, both from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. In Feeding Fish, their first formal collaboration, microplastics (glitter) were fed to decommissioned rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) as a documented performance.
