Maya Lin’s newest memorial project takes the form of an interactive website titled, What is Missing?The work documents instances of decreasing biodiversity of species and extinction worldwide. There seems to be an infinite amount to learn from this website, go check it out for yourself!
As one of the first projects for What Is Missing?, Maya Lin designed this “Listening Cone,” which was installed at the California Academy of Sciences in 2009. The cone is a cast-bronze form lined with reclaimed redwood. It draws in visitors with the sounds of 50 extinct or endangered species and landscapes. Images, quotes, and statistics emerge on a video screen inside the cone. (via Maya Lin’s Memorial to Vanishing Nature: e360 Gallery)
