MAYA LIN: TOPOLOGIES
Best known for her monumental public
sculptures such as the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial (1981-82) in Washington, D.C., Maya Lin also makes large sculptural installations and smaller-scale studio work. In Maya Lin: Topologies, Lin focuses on our relationship to
the ecology of landscape as seen through the lens of twentieth-century science and technology. Among works included are Rock Field, 1997, an installation of forty-three blown-glass forms that mimics a rocky river bed;
Untitled (Topographic Landscape), 1997, a large platform made of plywood strips that suggests the curvatures of the earth's topography; and a site-specific
installation of crushed glass.
