MATERIAL RESEARCH AND SYSTEMS DESIGN | Lint and the Laundromat

This project explores the exciting possibilities of dryer lint as a material. Linking back to the Lint's origin, I designed a proposal for a circular economy within the community of the Laundromat, allowing patrons to sell their lint made goods.
I created "How To" Cards to show others how to make with Lint. They cover a variety of Final Materials I explored in my research. These cards would be located in the laundromat or distributed online. The cards aim to inspire and guide lint making. This project gives Laundromat goers agency to sell products they make with lint, by providing a space to do so. This "store display" will be set up to allow people to see the products from the street, melding the Laundromat with the community.
