Maya Lin is the well-regarded American sculptor and landscape artist who won the commission for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. at the fresh age of 21 years.

“I think psychologically all these pieces are requesting very quietly that you really complete the piece. The piece begins as something for me, but it ends only when a visitor has interacted with it. It is not finished as a finite object; it requires an act of participation.”

Maya Lin[1]
