Important: This experimental documentary poetically explores our changing relationship to place and the natural world over time through its exploration of the Pine Barrens in New Jersey, the forest from which the trees from Ghost Forest were sourced. The documentary will be screened in conjunction with a live score by The Ruins of Friendship Orchestra and is presented in collaboration with Fotografiska New York.
For Madison Square Park Conservancy’s public art commissioning program, Maya Lin realizes a site-specific installation that brings into focus the ravages of climate change on woodlands around the world. Ghost Forest takes the form of a towering grove of spectral cedar trees, all sourced from the region and presented in sharp contrast to the park’s lush tree line. The installation builds on Lin’s practice of addressing species loss, habitat loss, and climate change within her work and serves as a call to action to the thousands of visitors who pass through the park daily.
These events are in support of Maya Lin’s Ghost Forest.
