Description
"The most prominent feature of the 3.5-acre park is the earthwork installation designed by internationally renowned artist and architectural designer Maya Lin. The piece, titled "Input," relates to Lin's first official connection with the university. The daughter of Professor Emerita of English Julia Lin and the late Henry Lin, Dean Emeritus of the College of Fine Arts, she studied computer programming at the university while in high school. The installation consists of 21 rectangles, some raised and some depressed, resembling computer punch cards that were a mainstay of early programming courses." --http://www.ohiou.edu/athens/bldgs/bicentennial.html Keywords: United States, Ohio, Athens County, landscapes (environments), outdoor spaces, site and landscaped elements.
