Artist Maya Lin

Filed under: environmental ideas,media related,social justice — Honilima @ 9:13 am

Maya Lin is most known for her early artistic accomplishment at age twenty-one winning the design competition for the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC. She is a brilliant artist to know and to watch and her accomplishments are many since her black granite work. If you are interesting in knowing more about her watch the 1995 documentary: Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision or to listen to her talking about her latest work with On Point Radio‘s Tom Ashbrook.

A decade ago she announced she was out of the memorial business entirely that she wanted to pursue other things. But then she has created “What is Missing” a multimedia memorial to all the species vanished or vanishing from the Earth, where you can hear some of the sounds of a number of species you may have taken for granted that are now endangered.
