Trust me, there is nothing in artist Alma Loveland's interpretation of laundry know-how that is going to get my teenager to do his own laundry from start to finish.
For one thing, it's way too complicated. Lint removal? The pretreating of stains? You may as well include the instructions for launching the space shuttle. Or loading the dishwasher.
But it's an inspired piece of artwork, commissioned as part of Blogher's Voices of the Year project, that captures perfectly the aspirations of parenthood: One day he will have his own children and they will leave wet towels all over his floors.
