New work from Berlin-based artist Astrid Bin, described as “one thousand paper airplanes are suspended in flight, like flocking birds, or swarming insects.” Reading her bio I’ve decided she’s probably a pretty cool lady:
S. Astrid Bin is a British-Canadian 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.
