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)

Reblog of the day!
The environmental artwork/memorial that I work on for Maya Lin launches today (an early Earth Day celebration). Please like What is Missing? on FB and check out our website: www.whatismissing.net to learn about species and habitat loss, explore a history of the environmental movement, and see what you can do in your everyday life to make a difference.
The What is Missing? Foundation creates, through science-based artworks, awareness on the current crisis surrounding the mass extinction of species and habitat.
