S. Astrid Bin is an interdisciplinary artist. Past endeavors have included baiting and then unbaiting 100 mousetraps with her hands, making a picture of a pigeon from 538 pieces of toast, documenting an attempt at making a million dollars in a year, locking herself in a disused bank vault for ten nights, making light into a drawing medium, sending hundreds of postcards to an empty building, shaving her head, and occupying a phone booth for 24 hours. She likes to play with, manipulate, study, test and provoke the audience in meaningful ways. She has received death threats, hate mail and international press.
She works two dimensionally (works on paper, text pieces, photography, printed projects), three dimensionally (installation, sculpture and art in public spaces) and four dimensionally (time-based and performance works).
