Artist and architect Maya Lin, famous for her stunning site-specific pieces and for her design of the Vietnam War Memorial as a 21-year-old undergraduate at Yale, has an enormous multimedia project underway. What is Missing? is an international collection of “science-based artworks” that call attention to mass extinction and encourage the prevention of deforestation. Last September, Lin’s Listening Cone was unveiled in California.

A few years earlier, sculptors Dan Havel and Dean Ruck created their own unrelated tribute to a different kind of extinction. In a project called Inversion, they transformed two houses of the Art League Houston into a mind-blowing installation a few months before the houses were demolished.

April 15’s daily design idea is check out Maya Lin’s video installation for What is Missing?, which you can see in person in Times Square from April 15-April 30.
