Best known for designing the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. while still an undergraduate at Yale, Maya Lin has created works that reflect an environmentalist ethos. Frequently working in a large scale with technological tools such as sonar maps and satellite images, Lin re-imagines and reconstructs the often hard-to-discern contours of the earth in gallery installations. For her well-known sculpture Water Line (2006), Lin used wire suspended from the ceiling to render actual topography of the ocean floor, imparting to viewers an eye-level perspective.
