about the bin

The dump. The trash can. The bin. This will be a space where artists Tash Kahn and john ros will share studio conversations within the realms of the visual and conceptual in order to better understand the moment we occupy. This space is meant to be a private conversation, though others may chime in from time to time when necessary. This space will be archived chronologically and will be meant to act as a place to plop stuff, allow it to percolate, digest and work through our ongoing collaborations – Citizen* and Signal**.

Our goals are for this space to serve our practice, with no real sense of audience or tangible result (though the very existence of this space already disproves that). We want this space to lead us — to move us — and to allow us to enter new spaces in our personal and collaborative art practices. Contradictions welcome.

*Citizen explores ideas of community, ethics, and why people do what they do
**Signal is a conversation in photographs, each one responding to the last

The Bin represents ongoing collaborative projects by Tash Kahn and john ros. This website has been an intersection of several parts of projects and has evolved and morphed as needed. Though this space is not currently being updated, the artists will revisit it as necessary. In the meantime, please visit tashkahn.com and johnros.com to view the artists’ new work.
