“[Capezzuti] has hit on a common denominator in the laundry-drying world while provoking questions about the nature of art. To find all this and humor too is a rare thing.”
–Ellen Wilson, Art Critic
The National Lint Project is a community art making inquiry that began in 1994 as a sculptural lark. The core of the project, the creation of one-load-of-lint-sized figures, ebbs and flows as people donate dryer lint from around the world. This project began as a four-year-long residency in a working laundromat from 2000-2004 has grown to include exhibits, installations of human-sized figures, contemporary puppetry and performance events.
The National Lint Project is currently accepting donations of lint from single households that have been collecting for a year or more. To participate write a short note about who you are and how you feel about doing laundry. Send your submission to Studio Capezzuti, 1509 Termon Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15212.
