Artist Statement

"My Life Has Gotten So Busy That It Now Takes Up All of My Time"

This work was Created out of a collection of over forty years worth of lint from the artist's two Maytag laundry dryers, both of which are still in working condition. One dryer produces circular collections of lint and the other rectangular. These collections are autobiographical detritus, and the artist can recall what clothes or objects - such as her daughter's baby blanket - contributed to each collection of lint. She says, "i have put together something about myself with all the lint from my clothes." The circular and rectangular forms of the lint gave her the inspiration for using Morse Code, which is comprised of dots and dashes. The Circular dots and rectangular dashes spell out the subtitle of the work.
