Wave Field, University of Michigan, North Campus

Maya Lin

Special thanks to John Weise for contributing this image. If you are interested in the image, please contact him directly at this address.

This outdoor sculpture, made of earth and sod, is located on the University of Michigan campus. Unlike many examples of earthworks (or earth art) it is not hidden away at some inaccessible location. This 10,000 square foot work is comprised of a series of 50 grass "waves" in 8 rows. (I don't know if it still exists--works like this being perishable by their very nature.)

See also Lin's most famous work, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
