Shifting Perception

In "Systematic Landscapes", her most recent exhibition to date, Maya Lin explores landscape as both form and content. Using natural materials, Maya Lin illustrates poetic ideas in such natural and simple forms. She investigates the characteristics of a sculpture; raising questions and exploring its malleable quality and ability to convey meaning. If you notice, her work mostly reflects back on our surroundings such as water and landscapes, without compromising their most distinct characteristics and organic contours. 

We're excited about what she has planned next for her last memorial project, "What's Missing?" expected for September 2009. It will be a multi-site media installation, which includes multi-site video projects, an Internet site and a book. The purpose of this exhibition is to remind us and open our eyes to the threatened natural habitats and the significant increase in loss of species.
