Hector Canonge – The Inwood Laundromat Language Institute

Inwood

During his residency Hector Canonge transformed his Inwood laundromat into The Inwood Laundromat Language Institute (TILLI) where he taught his Spanish speaking neighbors English. He led a series of language workshops, which took place at Magic Touch laundromat and organized a public event where his students read short compositions that they created during his classes. In addition to teaching basic English classes, Hector created an interactive touchscreen kiosk that documents his students’ experiences while enrolled at TILLI. The kiosk is currently installed at Magic Touch.
