Weekly Lints

In the 1970’s I collected the first of the lints from a lint trap that had a particularly satisfying shape. Always intending to continue with the lints, in 2006 a current machine provided the results that interested me. For a two year period, 2006/7, I collected the lints, stabilized, pressed, backed, and rubber stamped them, recording the date of their collection.

The Weekly Lints were installed as they were collected during my participation in Independent Studio Residency at the Toronto School of Art, Toronto, 2007.
