The capitalist economic system is characterised by surplus production. The artist understands this phenomenon, known as surplus, as an opportunity to investigate the relationship between man, matter and the force of nature. An example of this is Glass Beach near Ford Bragg in Northern California, where rubbish has been dumped in the sea for 50 years. Nature has eroded the glass into pearls popular with tourists.
