As the book reveals, Maya Lin's earthworks and public sculptures have always developed alongside small-scale exploratory sculptures and monumental temporary installations, such as Avalanche (1998), through which she evokes the physical processes that shape the earth. This volume also introduces three major new installation works created for the 'Systematic Landscapes' exhibition, along with a series of related drawings and reliefs demonstrating the expanding scope of Lin's creative process. Illus., 100 color/25 b&w. 112p.

Absolutely stunningMaya 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. This book is packed with absolutely beautiful photographs from all different angles of the sculptures and show just how much Lin has progressed in her style. There are almost rhythmic motions to some of the sculptures as they capture the rise and fall of the landscape. I highly recommend this book to any fans of Maya Lin or sculpture or of art in general. Must have for all collections.
