Maya Lin has always been one of my favorite artists, just the way that she views the world and translates it into her artwork. So I was extremely excited to see this latest book on her current interests, translating landscapes based upon sonar and aerial images into sculptural forms. And I continue to be amazed by her work. She's able to work in so many different mediums from wood to stone to line art, to capture the world around her and let us see it in a way that we've never thought of before. ...more
Maya Lin's work never fails to disappoint. She's remained one of the true, consistent visionaries of her generation. This catalogue is worth it for the magnificent "2 x 4 (Landscape)" alone (partially visible on the cover).

Just wanted to see some of Maya's other works. I love the library project. Also, watched her movie - A Stong Clear Vision. She is currently doing a 5 piece project on the Columbia River in Washington State.
Another artist I love and want to research more. Her ideas are simple, her forms are stellar and thought provoking.
