SHORT Video: Maya Lin: New York | Art21 –  Speaking from her Manhattan studio in late 2012 and early 2013, artist Maya Lin discusses her new body of work, which is shown at The Pace Gallery in New York City. Lin began this series of sculptures by examining New York’s ecological past—going back to the time when streams and marshes covered Manhattan through to Hurricane Sandy when rising sea levels wreaked havoc on the city. As a lifelong environmental activist, Lin has continually created artworks that encourage viewers to rethink their immediate surroundings.
