Blue Lake Pass
Maya Lin's Blue Lake Pass gets it's name from a landmark. With the use of vertical sheets of particle board, she cuts different heights and designs from each piece and when all put together, form the topographic lines of the landmark. The texture in this piece can be both seen and felt. The texture of the top of the sculptures, which have edges and curves, contrast with the sides, which are flat and smooth. This is visually appealing to the viewer. In all her pieces of this collection, Systematic Landscapes, Maya Lin connects her passion for architecture with her passion for art by using natural, simple and architectural materials for her sculptures.
