This interactive installation invites viewers to consider issues of “Surplus” and “Debt” in their own lives and experiences.

Instructions ask each viewer to consider situations where they feel they have given more than they have received back or where they have received more than they have given, to then write down that experience on one of the the provided note pads, and to place the sheet with their response in either the “Surplus” or the “Debt” receptacles.

In exchange for their participation, the viewers are invited to take one of the buttons located under each their entry’s box. Multiple surveys can be filled out reflecting different aspects of one’s life.
