An unusual name, 'Drift Matter' is meant to be a spin on 'Drift Wood'; which is the the wood that's carried across oceans and drifts onto the land. Drift wood that I've found always seems to have a clean and pure feel and look to it. Its the same with most of the material that ends of on the beach near where i live. Smoothed glass and pottery are also to an extent aesthetically pleasing, but its the randomness of the drift matter that is found that's really interesting.
I remember finding a kinder egg toy on the beach and inside the little cylinder was a small fishing ship. Random but appropriate.
